Tinhorn Creek 2Bench Oldfield Series Red 2008

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPeppery, barnyard, sweaty leather nose with nuances of chocolate, vanilla, cranberry and savoury black olive and cassis aromas. Dry, round, warm and somewhat tart palate with light but lean tannins. Cranberry, tobacco leaf, herbal, green olive, green bean, peppery, savoury, coffee, smoky roasted bell pepper flavours. A somewhat austere style that will need more time in the bottle to come around.Tasted: 27 December 2011Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 35.00 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
