Description

Named after a historic mining mountain in Western Canada, Red Mountain is a flavourful blend comprised of 46% Cabernet Franc, 29% Malbec and 25% Merlot. Each varietal was nurtured in small fermentation vats allowing for optimal temperature control, tannin, and aromatic extraction. The wines were aged in 100% French oak for 21 months.

Aromas of mocha, black currants, salty licorice, and tobacco intermingle with hints of sweet, toasty oak.

Pair this wine alongside of some roasted beef tenderloin or a comfy bowl of beef stroganoff.

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

Geographical Indication: VQA Okanagan Valley, B.C.
Varietal: Cabernet Franc (46%), Malbec (29%), and Merlot (25%)
Vineyard: Anastasia Vineyard, Naramata  
Cases Produced: 450

Appearance: Deep ruby colour.
Nose: Lightly cedary nose of black fruits enriched with oak spice.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, dry, well-extracted juicy cherry and plum flavours; well-balanced with nicely integrated oak and a firm finish.
Quality: Outstanding. 90 points. Drinking well now but deserves a year or two in your cellar.
