Mission Hill Compendium 2009

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe latest Compendium blend is 40/35/20/5 mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. The grapes come off specific blocks in Oliver and Osoyoos and end up in 100 percent French oak for 14 months. Nose is remarkably floral with a strong sense of minerality and a hint of seashore. The attack is sleek and sophisticated. The tannins are small firm and chalky; the flavor profile is very Bordelais with tobacco, black olive savoury notes throughout. An impressive young red wine.Tasted: 02 December 2012Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
