Tinhorn Creek 2Bench Oldfield Series Red 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLovely violet florals float throughout this Bordeaux blend, a full-bodied sun-baked Southern Okanagan mix of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, malbec, petit verdot that comes from both the Black Sage and Golden Mile Benches (hence, 2Bench). The firm frame of French oak (30 percent new) helps support the ripe fruit, while a gentle stream of acidity helps lend a freshening hand. Tannis are supple, and powdery clad to a moderate-length, pipe tobacco and espresso finish. A fit for lamb shank.Tasted: 07 November 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 30.49 winery direct, private and VQA wine shops Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
