Rocky Creek On The Mark NV

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaAnother look 30 months down the road at this one-of-a-kind-blend of 2012 and 2013 cabernet foch, maréchal foch, tempranillo, malbec and carmenère, grown on Vancouver Island in four southwest facing vineyards. The grapes went through a multi-day cold soak before fermentation, an extended maceration and nine months of ageing in barrel. The attack is juicy with cool, acidic cran-cherry red berry fruit with an earthy, foxy undercurrent. It’s a touch more mellow but still alive enough to take on a fall mushroom beef stew or grilled hamburgers.Tasted: 29 June 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 20.00 winery direct BC 22.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Rocky Creek WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
