The full fruit flavours and low tannins make this red wine ideal for patio-sipping or pairing with poultry, veal or pasta.

This complex blend of fully ripened red varietals with soft rounded tannins easily demonstrates that the Cowichan Valley’s micro-climate can produce full and complex red wines.

Pairs well with hearty meat dishes, pastas and cheese.
