A delightful nose with a tight fist of pure black cherry and balsamic. The palate is graced with a stoniness, and seasoned with savoury wild herbs and peppery spices. Tannins are compact and well integrated throughout.
This single vineyard syrah comes off a higher altitude, windy, rocky, older vine Keremeos Bench. After destemming, this was native fermented in open top fermenters and hand punched twice daily, and then pressed into older French barrels, where it aged for 16 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
John and Virginia Weber both grew up in Southern Saskatchewan. Virginia worked as a nurse and John taught High School. Life settled and things were good until they met the Similkameen Valley in 2001. The desire to try something new, their love of wine and the beauty of the Similkameen convinced them to purchase a vineyard and move from Saskatchewan to Cawston. They quickly fell in love with the area and its burgeoning wine industry. Virginia and John have two sons Jack and Nate. They share their house with a ridiculously adorable Havanese dog named Poppy and an enigmatic cat named Rosie, who all look forward to welcoming you to Orofino!
