Black Hills Nota Bene 2007

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis note comes from a 17-wine vertical tasting held in Osoyoos, British Columbia on Saturday September 30. Each of the bottles tasted were in good physical condition although clearly some of the older, formative years are now past their best. Working through 17 vintages of Nota Bene makes it clear that better viticulture, older grapes vines, new facilities and better wine knowledge has improved the all-round quality of the current Nota Bene labels when compared to its humbler beginnings. In 2007 Black Hills was sold by the original founders and became a limited partnership venture adding additional resources to the winery’s bag of tricks. The blend is a 46/39/15 mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and cabernet franc at 14.7 percent alcohol. This is a beefier version of 2006 with black cherry fruit and cassis that turns into a savoury, espresso, pipe tobacco affair, with a roasted tomato dusty finish. Graham Pierce co-chair the vintage with Senka Tennant.Tasted: 05 November 2017Tasted by: Prices:
