Matt’s review:  This beautiful Okanagan blend showcases the strength, elegance, and harmony of Burrowing Owl’s premium wines. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon and 42% Syrah, from Burrowing Owl’s estate vineyards on the Black Sage Bench, it’s deep and concentrated with layers of dark fruits, sweet spices, and an elegant yet rich texture. The wine was aged for 18 months in a blend of 71% French, 23% American and 6% Hungarian oak, with only 17% new oak, then bottled unfiltered, and the result is pure Black Sage Bench expression of these two remarkable varietals that together are far greater than they’d be on their own. A testament to the winemaking genius of Burrowing Owl’s team, that produced a truly remarkable wine from the outstanding 2015 vintage. Tasted November 2018. 95 points.
