Naramata Bench, British Columbia
A luscious and bold wine that is not to be taken lightly. Inviting notes of cassis, tobacco leaf and sarsaparilla lead to a plush and complex palate. Wood spices and vanilla bean allude to the well-integrated French oak. The persistent finish will leave you simultaneously satiated, yet wanting more. Supremely balanced upon release though under ideal cellaring conditions its strong structure will permit ageing until 2027.
