2017 Jackpot 5th Element
This wine opens with powerful notes of black cherry, pepper, tobacco, and cream. This tremendous aromatic complexity carries onto the palate which is supremely rich and supple, with an abundance of tannins. This wine is impeccably balanced and filled with unrivalled complexity. This wine pairs perfectly with a good steak, a rack of lamb, a just a good ole fashion pat on the back.
This complex, fruit-driven wine is the product of two different vineyard sites. Three-quarters of the grapes in this wine came from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley, and the balance coming from our Castle Vineyard in the heart of the Golden Mile. During harvest, the grapes from each of these vineyards were sampled bi-weekly to measure flavour development and maturity to ensure quality consistency in the blend.
