Mission Hill Compendium 2012

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Mission Hill’s Legacy Series Compendium is a 42/41/17 cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc blend. It rich and stylish but more Bolgheri than Napa with its tighter leafier, floral cabernet fruit that is awash in sagebrush and menthol, seemingly intensifying the blackberry/black cherry fruit. The tannins are well managed, dense and fine-grained with a slight sandpaper grit yet to shed. The finish is firm and mineral suggesting another decade of cellar time. A lot to like here, but another level of finesse would take this to an even better place. You could drink this with at-Bone steak but have some patience. It needs more bottle age.Tasted: 13 April 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 81.99 BCLS MB 75.00 MLCC Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
