Dead of Night 2017

Dead of Night 2017

Our 2005 planting of Tannat in our Osoyoos East Bench Vineyard was the first of its kind in Canada. The planting has consistently delivered lush, age-worthy and intriguing wines ever since. Dead of Night is a blend of Tannat (a dark and tannic red grape, traditionally grown in the Madiran region of South West France) and Syrah, and is a one of a kind wine with a gorgeous texture and depth of flavour. We'd say it was our flagship wine, if waving a flag didn't draw attention to us....

The 2017 Dead of Night is a dry, medium to full-bodied red wine with deep ruby colour and nose of baking spices, chocolate and raspberries. The palate brings out characters of lavender, cherry, leather and cinnamon. The wine has fantastic structure; the silky and plush tannins provide the perfect underpinning for the lingering acidity and the generous savoury and floral notes.

Dead of Night (surprisingly for such a well-structured wine) is approachable and drinks well upon release. However, this is also a wine that has the flavour intensity, as well the acid and tannin structure required to make it an excellent candidate for cellaring for up to ten years. Your patience will be rewarded – we continue to be surprised at how beautifully this wine evolves in bottle over time.
