Howling Bluff Sin Cera 2008

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe '08 Sin Cera a mix of mostly merlot with cabernet franc and malbec is slightly more structured then the '07. The fruit is fresher and cleaner and a bit more cherry-berry, almost Zinfandel-like, but the tannins are bigger and more grippy with some acidity poking through the back end. This will need time to settle down. Try it now with a big steak or cut of prime rib. Tasted: 10 July 2010Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
