2015 Vicuña Roja
Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc — Alliance’s “Mini Me”!
Aromatic, medium bodied, earthy, fruity, and a little sultry. The bouquet is a concentrated blend of cassis, raspberry, plums, jasmine and sandalwood. It flows smoothly over the tongue and offers a generous punch of wild berries, cherries, juicy cranberries and earthy flavours from mid palate to long finish!

2014 Cabernet Franc$ 44.00
Prepare yourself for a deep, brooding, nutty bouquet from this long barrel aged Cabernet Franc. Rich, reduced flavours and aromas of spiced stewed plums, almonds, tamarind and pomelo zest give it a depth and a kick, with gentle cedar notes. Cabernet Franc is a great choice with lamb, beef and goat cheese.

2014 Sea Buckthorn Riesling$ 32.00
Join the millions of people who have discovered Sea Buckthorn! This super fruit was infused into our late harvest Riesling for those who want to enjoy wine and feel good about their health. Amber in colour, with aromas of apricot, caramelized pineapple, and golden raisins. Full body and off dry. A bit of botrytis – along with good acidity – rounds out this wine, offering a full citron, quince, and golden fruit mid-palate, with a juicy finish of tamarind, apples, and Sea Buckthorn. Sea Buckthorn berries are considered to be a superfood with high amounts of vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids (3,6,9 and the rare 7)! This wine also pairs well with Asian cuisine.

2010 President$ 880.00
The 2010 President is our once in a lifetime iconic Bordeaux-style blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The President was aged in brand new French oak barriques for 3 years, 2 years in French Puncheons, and then bottle aged for an additional 3 years totalling 8 years before its highly anticipated release. This well structured wine proves it is ready to drink now or cellar for another decade. Aromas of cedar, mint chocolate, leather, coffee bean, caramel and ripe stewed black plums. On the palate the wine is full bodied, velvety smooth and dry with notes of luscious black cherries, sweet baking spices and vanilla. Silky tannins and an extra long mouth watering finish. This wine was well worth the wait! (1.5 L bottle)

2010 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon$ 98.00
Copper Cap, Limited Release
If you like a luscious wine, you will love the 2010 Copper Cap Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. Fragrant and ultra rich with intense juicy flavours of cherry and raspberry. Succulent, smooth, beautifully balanced, with very fine tannins. Look for Kirsch cherries, sweet bell peppers, vanilla, and a hint of licorice. Harvested from rocky soil in Osoyoos, which gives this wine a gorgeous light minerality throughout. Pairs really well with coconut risotto, topped with lobster and prawns braised in garlic butter; also with beef tenderloin or a juicy steak.

2009 Alliànce$ 69.00
A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is Blackwood Lane’s Signature wine. Full-bodied, complex and very juicy, with a cornucopia of flavours and aromas that make it a delightful sipping or food pairing wine. Aromas of spiced cherries, raspberry, cassis, violets, sweet oak, wet stone and cocoa. Bright, rich flavours of cherry, raspberry, graphite and cassis, with a strong mid-palate and an extra-long finish of cherries with a hint of cocoa.
“One of my favourite bottles this year – and it’s from BC! Displaying an enticing nose of dark fruit, oak & a slight floral note, this BC Bordeaux-blend balances oak and ripe fruit beautifully with hints of cocoa & spice. Reminiscent of some of my favourite WA State red blends. Blackwood Lane’s motto of “Bonus Vita et Bonus Amici” translates to “Good Life and Good Friends” – I couldn’t think of a better way to sum up my Vivino experience and celebrate the 1,000 Tasting Note milestone! A votre santé mes amis!”
