Clos du Soleil Signature 2008

Keremeos, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA blend of 52 percent merlot, 26 percent cabernet sauvignon, 13 percent cabernet franc, and 9 percent malbec, only 11 barrels were produced. The 2008 Signature shows riper, more opulent fruit than the 2007 vintage, and is decidedly into the black fruit spectrum. It's still quite youthful and primary, with just the faintest hint of evolution. More powerful in style, it's broad and rich but kept in balance with fresh, integrated acidity. 2008 was a cooler vintage in the Okanagan/Similkameen, but this manages to show considerable ripeness, marked by 14.5% abv. Give this another 3-5 years.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.00 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
