Church & State Wines Quintessential 2011

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the southern Okanagan's Coyote Bowl and Sunridge vineyards comes Church & State's archetypical (some could say quintessential) Bordeaux blend. Merlot, cab sauv, cab franc, malbec and petit verdot hit the mark and all the talking points in this ripe, focused blend. Deep plum, blackberry and floral up front lead to a bright palate of black fruit and tight spice which lingers on the finish. Drinking very well now, though can hold 2-4 more years for increased depth.
