Aged 20 months in 34% new French oak, bottled without fining or filtration. Our blend of 52% Merlot, 48% Cabernet Franc is named after the evocative corner of the Le Mans racing circuit in France, where perfect driver balance and finesse are key to a clean exit leading to one of the longest straightaways in motor racing.

This is a single vineyard wine from Turtle Rock Farms above the Naramata Bench. Carefully tended by the Britton family, this stunning property has perfect conditions for long slow ripening of Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
2018 was a fairly typical growing season in the Okanagan with temperatures cooling off in the fall to allow great hang time for tannin ripeness and fresh wines. Both the Merlot and Cabernet Franc were significantly fermented as whole cluster. Intense black and blue fruits on the nose with sarsaparilla carry the wine to a substantial but fine grained structure with fresh acidity and spicy white pepper.
