Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The grapes for the 2010 Compendium were sourced from some of our top vineyard parcels along the Osoyoos and Black Sage Benches. It is a dark, dense and brooding giant of a wine, featuring a complex mix of black currants, blueberry, licorice, mint and dark chocolate. The palate is rich and full-bodied with muscular tannins and well-focused flavours.

Vineyard Notes
While the 2010 growing season posed some significant challenges, the estate vineyards on the east-side of Osoyoos Lake and Black Sage Bench overcame the late bud break, cool conditions during flowering, and an unusually cool summer, eventually yielding some exceptional fruit, albeit at moderately reduced yields. Tight pruning regimes and careful vine and irrigation management all came to the fore in allowing the relatively low-yielding “Compendium blocks” to reach desired maturation levels with optimal phenolic ripeness.
Winemaker Notes
41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc. Hand harvested from Osoyoos & Oliver Vineyards in October 2010. Fermentation & extended maceration in small French Oak Fermenters Aged in French oak barrels for 13 months.
Other Notes
The grapes were selected from designated blocks within our estates in Osoyoos and Oliver; they were hand harvested and hand sorted and then gravity filled to small French oak fermenters. After 3 weeks extended maceration the free run wine and a small portion of lightly basket pressed wine was aged separately in 100% French oak barrels for 13 months.
