Painted Rock Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Skaha Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEasily one of the best cabernets we have tasted in BC, no doubt a combination of diligent farming and a vintage warm enough to ripen a variety that most years never does. Love the savoury, earthy, spicy nose laden with smoky cassis, black pepper, celery salt, coffee and vanilla aromas. The attack is dry, fresh and round with a noticeably fuller palate with just a hint of grainy tannins. Expect a big mix of cassis, black cherry, inky, Oxo, coffee, earthy, black olive/pepper and vanilla flavours. Good balance and concentration, should develop well with 3-5 years aging.
