The previous vintage showed dramatic brambly aromas and flavours. This was a tank sample that promises a lot of flavour and aroma development when it has time in bottle. The wine, now full of brooding cherry flavours, is made with grapes from Oliver. 90.

Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine in January's Wine Club package.

 

Geographical Indication: Okanagan Valley, BC

Vineyard: Pendergraft Vineyards, Osoyoos, BC

Cases Produced: 100

 

Appearance: Bright. Semi-opaque. Dark ruby core, lighter rim.

Nose: Medium aromatic intensity. Coffee, sweet tobacco, dark stewed fruits, plum and prune, black tea, eucalyptus.

Palate: Medium acid, medium tannin, medium body. Black fruit, stewed rhubarb, prune, black pepper, savoury herbs, a hint of menthol.

Quality: Very good quality with a medium length finish. This wine is subtle, delicate and aged, and closer in makeup to a Bordeaux Cabernet Franc than a Niagara or cooler climate Cabernet Franc. It’s been aged in French oak for 18 months and will hold up well to many different foods, but is also intriguing to sip on its own. Could cellar up to 5 years.

Food Pairing: Tourtière or pork pie, steak and kidney pie, Filet Mignon with creamed spinach, rosemary-encrusted lamb shanks, assorted charcuterie and aged meats.
