Price: $120 ($40/bottle)
Unfined. Unfiltered. Unsanctioned. Trust us.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Unsanctioned Series is reserved for very special wines. In the cellar, each barrel takes on a life of its own. As we were doing blending trials for The Syndicate 2016, one barrel stood out. With each successive round, it became clear that this one particular barrel deserved a bottle of its own.
The Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in a sun-drenched vineyard in Osoyoos. The wine was fermented in a small lot and aged for 20 months in a new French oak barrel. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Only 25 cases produced.
An elegant, well-balanced wine that is approachable right out of the bottle, but with enough structure to enable cellaring and enjoyment over the next 5 years. The wine opens with seductive flavours of black cherries, currant, pomegranate and plum, layered with subtle cedar notes and a floral lift. The wine is concentrated, with well-integrated tannins and acidity that linger into a long finish.
