  • About this winery

    Established by the Shaunessy and Oldfield families on the South Okanagan’s legendary Golden Mile Bench in 1993, Tinhorn Creek is a very special winegrowing project, comprising 150 acres of spectacular vineyards in two distinct areas, one on either side of the valley.

    Substantial, succulent, toasted. The 2013 version of this wine is comprised of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, 6% Malbe and 3% Petit Verdot. It is consistently a supple and substantial wine; ripe blackberry, black cherries, dried lilacs, sweet baking spices notes and cedar chips, lead the nose. The palate is succulent and smooth, and meaty and toasted, with dusty black fruit flavours and a potent bittersweet finish. It is quite mouthfilling and this year I sense more oak on the palate.

    This wine is structured to cellar 10 or 15 years, so it needs to be decanted for current consumption. It begins with aromas of black currants, mint, herbs and cigar box. With breathing, the wine shows blueberry aromas as well. This is all echoed on the palate, along with notes of dark chocolate and black olive. The wine also aged 18 months in French oak barrels (30% new) and a year in bottle before release.  There is a lot of upside here for those prepared to cellar the wine.
