Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon 2012Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine is consistent favourite for Treve and I’ll admit it is one of the better south Okanagan bottles although most years the cabernet franc is better. The 2012 is big and deep structured with plenty of tobacco and dusty, savoury dried herbed classic southern Okanagan cabernet. Dark cherry, cassis and that dusty tobacco leaf fill this well-built wine, while figs, coffee, cinnamon bark and a whiff of cured meat linger in the finish. Still rich and while you can drink it now it will continue to knit with short term cellaring. Think beef.Tasted: 05 January 2016Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices:
