As the story goes, One-Armed Reid, thought by many as the first to stake a claim near Fairview, above Oliver, BC. figured it might be his last chance to make it big time.
One-Armed Reid’s Last Chance is a unique blend of barrel-aged Merlot, old-vine, small lot Zinfandel, Zweigelt, Blaufrankisch and Chancellor created to honor his go-get-‘em spirit and tenacity.
We expect he’d have danced a jig to share its boldness of character earthiness, and tobacco- saddle leather overtones with his hard-living cronies at the Big TeePee. “Give me a Last Chance with a jus-kilt roasted Muley, or a damn good steak from one of them critters that was cowboyed up here through Osoyoos!” he might’ve said.
And since there’s no Chancellor plantings (root stock now grafted to Cab Franc) to go around these days, this could well be your last chance to enjoy a glass of local history from our earliest vines.
