Voluptuous BottleVoluptuous Label


Elegance and ageability. Complex aromas of ripe prune plum, blueberry, dried herbs, dusty burlap, tobacco and bacon lead to an intense and structured palate with great tannin and acidity for ageing. The palate constantly evolves through flavours of plum, cherry, sage, cocoa and graphite that persist into a long mineral finish.

4 out of 5 starsReviewed on July 18, 2016

This was, quite simply, delicious!!  A deep, rich and full-bodied red blend, but approachable and friendly to the palate!  Quite complex, with lots of plum, cherry and herbs on the nose and palate with a long, juicy finish! I had this with a Pork Shoulder Blade steak...fantastic! Another great example of the Okanagan Valley at its finest!!
