Our Signature Bordeaux Style Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc.
The 2015 Alliànce offers up an abundant amount of fruit that totally captivates the palate. It is a rich, full-bodied fruit forward wine with ample acidity, fine tannins, and an aged sophistication that distinguishes Carlos’ wines. You may find aromas of fruitcake, toffee, Red Delicious apples and marzipan, and rich flavours of apple, raspberry and cherry, with secondary floral, peppercorn, and cola notes that open up on the finish. A must have for any wine lover’s collection!
Fragrant bouquet! Abundant fruit!
An inviting bouquet of red plum, apple, soft white rose, savoury and earthy scents. Rich and persistent juicy cherry and pomegranate flavours and a citrus structure. Warm and scrumptious and finishes very long with rich, fragrant fruit.
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!
Powerful nose with an inkling of cinnamon, an abundance of juicy Montmorency cherries, gentle jasmine flowers, almonds, bell peppers and lemon meringue. Succulent cherry flavours explode across your tongue as it finishes long with dark cherries and suggestion of sweet almonds.
Made from locally grown Cabernet Foch grapes from an Aldergrove vineyard next to a lavender field. This wine is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Maréchal Foch. Our 2017 Cabernet Foch is bold with bell pepper flavours and aromas. On the nose are black olives, and a pleasant earthiness. It is a dry red that is a little savoury and has good acidity. Enjoy flavours of sour red cherries, bell peppers, red plums and lavender. The finish is long and peppery. We aged this wine in both French and American oak barrels for 18 months.
2015 “The Reference” Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, 14.8% abv. Each bottle has been serialized. 1000 bottles produced. This vintage is rich, with deep, succulent red fruit flavours. It was aged in French oak barriques and puncheons and is made from sun-ripened Okanagan Valley grown grapes. The bouquet is very fragrant of sweet almonds, raspberries, cherries, plums, apricots, allspice and nutmeg, with some warm savoury notes. The tannins are nicely structured and a little chewy. Full bodied, with rich flavours of raspberries, sour cherries and fleshy apricots on a finish that lasts forever!
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.

This is the perfect wine for the holidays!
These grapes hung on until the bitter cold end in our Osoyoos vineyard, gaining a rich, dried fruit, unctuous sweetness. The colour is a medium gold and it has a viscous texture. The bouquet is of fragrant dried apricots, candied orange rind, lilies, honeysuckle, honey, citron and green tea. Ample zestiness calms down the sweetness and adds a lively body. A beautiful perfumed orange liqueur shows up on the long lingering finish. Enjoy as an aperitif or with white stilton cheese, a spicy noodle dish, roasted chicken, or baked ham.
This Cab Franc Wine from Blackwood Lane Winery is opulently perfumed with sandalwood, candied apple and plum aromas. The flavours are of Bosc pears, boysenberry, black cherry preserves, ripe Ambrosia apples, cranberry sauce and dark berries. A bright and smooth fruity wine that is very easy drinking. 100% Osoyoos grown Cabernet Franc grapes, and lightly oaked. This is perfect for the Holidays! Stock up now.

A refreshing rosé that is very food friendly and thirst quenching! Decant to allow the flavours to flourish and serve chilled.
$24.00Softly perfumed aromas mingle with sweet lemon, apricots and a splash of vanilla. Beautifully balanced and silky with ample juicy stone fruit, quince, Bartlett pear, and melon flavours mid palate and a crisp white citrus finish. An elegant patio sipper!
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)
