At the heart of our Merlot lies the diversity of our 25-acre Desert Ridge vineyard just north of Osoyoos. It’s a vineyard alive with nuance across 100 north to south running rows. Soil types vary from sandy to stony with some deep-running clay. Vine vigor varies, as do corresponding cropping levels. It’s as if it is 100 mini vineyards in one. After nearly 1 ½ years in barrels, we have integrated those 100 mini vineyards into one pure expression of place.
