Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2009 Quatrain is full bodied, yet soft and approachable with fine tannins and a round, fruit forward palate. Merlot and Syrah blend seamlessly and are from the finest parcels along the Black Sage and Osoyoos benches. Notes of plum, dark cherry, blueberries and pepper fill the glass, along with subtle hints of licorice, clove, tobacco and vanilla. This well-structured wine displays fine tannins and bright acidity to frame its exotic spice and ripe fruit notes.
Vineyard Notes
The late spring and delayed bud burst notwithstanding, a dry June, steady summer warmth and picture-perfect autumn weather made for an early harvest of exceptional quality. The hottest August and September on record were counterbalanced by an unprecedented Arctic outflow on October 10th, which brought vintage 2009 to a swift conclusion requiring patience, steadfastness and resourcefulness from our picking crews. Harvest for Quatrain took place in our southern vineyards in Osoyoos and Oliver. These estate vineyards feature a dry growing season with hot summer days tempered by cool nights. The high day-night temperature differential average of 15°C (59°F) in the weeks before harvest trigger a high concentration of polyphenols, creating wines with great flavour and colour intensity. State-of-the-art receiving facilities enabled varieties to be harvested with careful efficiency at optimum ripeness.
