Sandhill Small Lots Program One Phantom Creek Vineyard 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCabernet sauvignon, malbec, petit verdot, syrah, cabernet franc and merlot come together in this full bodied, brooding red, one of Sandhill's Small Lots (20 barrels of this wine). Ripe cassis, twine, leather, black cherry and compote spices on the nose carry through to the smooth, supple palate. Here, 24 months in new American oak shows evidently with vanilla, sweet wood and spiced berries come into play, propping up the heady fruit. Rich and soft, in a California-meets-BC style, great for braised meats with sweeter root vegetables.Tasted: 28 September 2015Tasted by: Prices:
