Wine Writer’s Comment:
Quinta Ferreira’s vineyards are located in the Okanagan Valley’s renown Black Sage Bench, famous for producing outstanding grapes due to its desert climate, soils and growing conditions.
Characteristic of the terroir, this Cabernet Sauvignon has rich, bold expressions of dark cherry, black currant, savoury herbs, green bell pepper, and cracked black pepper. Winemaker Michael Ferreira has patiently aged this wine for 19 months in 60% French Oak and 40% American Oak barrels which lends hints of caramel and toffee to the wine. This wine is a delight for summer BBQs and picnics, and charcuterie plates.
