In 1960, Andrew Peller, the founder of Andrés Wines (now Andrew Peller Ltd.), was unsuccessful in developing a vineyard in the Similkameen Valley. Although the winery developed a brand called Similkameen Superior (still available), most of its British Columbia fruit was sourced in the Okanagan.The winery returned to the Similkameen in 1997, investing with growers Roger and Annette Hol in a 70-acre property, formerly an alfalfa field, that is now the Rocky Ridge Vineyard. Nine varieties have been planted here, notably Merlot, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay and Cabernet Franc. Bordered on either side by steep mountains, the Similkameen Valley has hot, dry summers that deliver ripeness. The grapes for this wine were hand-picked between October 20 and 22, 2005, at 24.6 Brix.The wine shows an attractive garnet hue with a complex aroma of red currants, pepper and spice. The flavours pick up on the pepper and red currants, with notes of chocolate. There is a gamy, brambly, charmingly rustic character created by the mingling of the berry flavours with the tannins. This is the wine to drink with gourmet hamburgers. 87 points.

Winemaker's Notes:

Cherry red color. Boldness of ripe red berries, complex notes of spice and sweetness of rhubarb. An explosion of luscious red berries, delicate yet complex spice and rhubarb with the freshness of limes on the lingering finish.
