In 2009, our winemaking team sensed that 2007 was destined to be an incredible vintage. We held back two barrels each of our three most-sought after wines. They kept these wines in barrel for an additional 2 months before bottling, and then laid them down in a quiet, dark, cool space for 7 years. In 2015 we labeled them and now we are happy to announce their existence to the world. As Jeff Stewart, our winemaker, proclaimed "We aged them for you!"

- "Full ruby. Primary dark berry and cherry pit aromas are complicated by notes of lavender and peppery spices. Silky and appealingly sweet, offering vibrant black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and an exotic touch of star anise. Silky tannins make a late appearance and add shape to a smooth, clinging finish."

- "Bright yellow. Powerful, deeply pitched poached pear, mango and iodine aromas, with a zesty mineral overtone. Rich and broad but energetic as well, offering chewy orchard and citrus fruit flavors and a smoky nuance. Quite lithe for such a powerful wine, and showing no excess fat. Closes on a spicy note, with excellent clarity, energy and length."

- "Vivid yellow. Zesty lemon and green apple aromas are complemented by notes of iodine, sweet butter and anise. Taut and linear on the palate, displaying intense, mineral-accented citrus zest and floral qualities. The mineral element repeats strongly on the pure, focused finish."
Dark cherry, rose petal, ginger and earth aromas are complemented by mixed berries, blood orange, cinnamon and clove flavors. The long finish is rich and velvety, capturing the elegance of Fog Dance along with the power of Maclean's Block.
