Fragrant, savoury, spicy.
Time (along with Evolve Cellars and McWatters Collection and the winery + kitchen and tasting bar in downtown Penticton) is now under the umbrella of Five Vines Cellars after being purchased from the McWatters family by Ron and Shelley Mayert in June, 2020. Christa-Lee McWatters remains as general manager and Darrian McWatters as operations manager.
Born of the Sundial Vineyard in Oliver and the Saddle Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos, this opulent Syrah spent 16 months in French oak before bottling.
A fragrant red, it doles out plush aromas of plum cake and blackberries, cracked pepper and espresso, spiced cocoa and vanilla. It's a fresh version, savoury with succulent black fruit, meat and spice; the finish trails salted licorice.
Second review: March 8, 2021
Plums and black raspberries, purple flowers and vanilla, carob and spice notes lead to a palate with white pepper, cocoa and wild berry flavours. Good freshness overall, tobacco flavours and chalky tannins trail across the finish.
