Clos du Soleil Signature 2012

British Columbia, CanadaThe 2012 vintage of Signature is sourced almost entirely from the Similkameen, including from Clos du Soleil's home vineyard. A blend of 48 percent cabernet sauvignon, 42 percent merlot, 9 percent cabernet franc, and one percent petit verdot, this was aged in French oak for 18 months, with 19 barrels making the grade for Signature. This has a classic nose of cedar, graphite, currant, and fresh herbs with underlying, integrated oak. Medium-bodied, it's quite fresh with well-managed tannins. It's showing some evolution, but it has at least 10+ years of life yet. A lovely expression of place and vintage.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 45.00 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
