Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTypical Northwest peppery, tobacco leaf, savoury, dried herb nose with black olive, smoky, coffee, vanilla and light barnyard aromas. Round, dry, fresh palate with some grippy tannin. Vanilla pudding, coffee, peppery, earthy, cedar, tobacco flavours dominate the youthful palate before you get to the black cherry, cranberry, savoury, green tea flavours. Love the youthful, fresh finish but with a big dose of oak to shed. Needs 2-4 years more in bottle. Another good effort and getting closer to the finish line.Tasted: 26 January 2011Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
