Quails' Gate Old Vines Foch 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOh foch - you're so divisive: like or hatred. These hybrid grapes (named after French World War I hero, General Ferdinand Foch) were planted in 1978 in Osoyoos. Think roasted earth, sunbaked cassis, charcoal and chargrilled onions, all riding a rustic-edged cushion of tannins. The end has a snap of cassis and bitter coffee. Well suited to hearty meat stews or venison.Tasted: 11 October 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.00 winery direct, private wine shops AB 24.99 private wine shops ON 27.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
