Sweet black cherries, juicy plum and eucalyptus on the nose. The wine is round and full on the palate with silky ripe tannins. Sweet fruit lingers on the finish with hints of mint, tobacco and well integrated toasted oak. Elegant and sophisticated this wine will age beautifully

The 2014 growing year was an exceptional one; the temperatures were hot but consistent,
leading to well balanced and beautifully ripe fruit. September cooled nicely to slow the sugar
development while the flavours and tannin continued to develop and the bright acidity was
retained. This has gone down as a “textbook Okanagan vintage” and the first of which that
Painted Rock has seen. Reviewers have commented that the reds of the 2014 !
vintage have the potential to be “show-stoppers”.
Aged 18 months in 30% new French oak.
