Mission Hill Compendium 2012

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAfter two challenging, cool vintages, 2012 came along as a welcome change of pace. But it also wasn’t a blockbuster year, and the best wines show a lovely combination of freshness and ripeness - making them quite ageworthy. That’s on display here, with more overt herbaceousness than the other wines tasted in the line-up. Herbaceousness doesn’t mean unripe, though; after all, this is cabernet sauvignon (42 percent) we’re talking about. After eight years, the fruit, predominantly black is beginning to dry out, so begin to think about pulling this out of your cellar and into a decanter.Tasted: 19 September 2020Tasted by: Prices:
