Dead of Night 2018

Dead of Night 2018

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 2018 Dead of Night is a dry, medium to full-bodied red wine with medium ruby colour and nose of strawberries, pomegranate and salted dark chocolate. The palate brings out characters of dark cherry, black licorice, red currants and leather. The wine has fantastic structure; the structured, well-integrated tannins provide the perfect backdrop for the lingering finish and the generous savoury and fruity 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.
