This long imagined wine was inspired by a legendary wine of mythical esteem called Chateau Cheval Blanc 1947.  Both our Milestone and the Chateau Cheval Blanc were grown on complex alluvial soils in a long and hot season. Both contain a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.  The 1947 vintage was of renowned quality much like the 2015 vintage in the South Okanagan. Aged in premium French Oak for 24 months.

Only 50 cases produced.

Wine Profile
Ranked #1 Wine of the Year in 2023 and scored 96pts from Carl’s Wine Club! Carl Boucher’s Review: "This is a magical wine, in terms of texture, length, power, finesse and complexity. This is probably one of the top 10 Canadian red wines that I have ever tasted. I mean, this is very special, a complete harmony in all aspects. The refinement and the finesse are at a World Class level with pin-point flavour definition, well defined edges and incredible softness. On the nose, aromas of cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate welcome you at first followed by forest floor, pencil shavings, cedar box and a hint of dried herbs. The palate shows a perfect seven years of evolution with sweet black fruits like blackberry, black plum and dark cherry. The mid-palate offers a stunning complexity highlighting different levels of torrefaction with expresso coffee, dark chocolate, black licorice and toasted spice well integrated with vanilla and other oak elements. The finish is long, very long! With a reminiscence of a great right-bank Bordeaux (wink - wink Chateau Cheval Blanc) where white pepper intermingles perfectly with graphite. The tannins are perfectly immersed, and the structure stands firm, all in a wonderful softness. Do not decant this wine. (CWC, Sept 22, 2023).”
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs beautifully with beef wellington or roasted leg of lamb.

I saved my bottle of 2012 Milestone for my birthday, and it was absolutely incredible. The fruit still present, it was big and juicy, with excellent structure - this wine ages incredibly. The colour was nearing garnet, sitting at the perfect stage to open and enjoy. Can’t wait to get my hands on the 2015 that’s still available !!! Big thank you to Ted and the River Stone team, your consistency and mastery of awesome reds is always appreciated.
