Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPeppery, spicy, cherry, tobacco, cedar, licorice root and light sandalwood aromas with a touch of volatility.

A bit warm and tart on the finish but has good overall finesse. Needs a few years to integrate the oak.Tasted: 23 August 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
