Step into the Old World through the New World’s front door. This medium-bodied blend is classically structured, but brimming with vibrant Okanagan fruit. An elegant combination of Merlot (41%), Cabernet Franc (29%), Cabernet Sauvignon (15%) and Petit Verdot (15%). This wine was grown in sun-drenched vineyards in Kaleden, Osoyoos and Oliver, and harvested between October 12th and 21st. Each varietal was fermented separately in small lots and aged for 21 months in French oak barrels, of which 40% were new.
An elegant, well-balanced wine with aromas and flavours of black currant, plum, dark chocolate, cedar and tobacco. Firm tannins with a hint of acidity, and a long finish. Smooth and rich in texture and approachable now, this wine will blossom with another 5 years in the bottle.
As food and wine always go hand-in-hand, The Syndicate is always destined to be a food wine. We achieved a balanced wine with enough acidity and tannins to enjoy with a variety of foods, especially with grilled or roasted red meats.
