Perseus Select Lots Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe grapes come off the south Okanagan Inkameep Vineyard and its famous ‘U2 block’, a plateau setting, facing south, at 340 meters of elevation. The soil is deep sandy, glacio-fluvial materials. The bedrock is dominated by gneiss and granite. The site was first planted by Sam Baptist in the late 70s, more vines went in the mid 80s before the latest plantings in the early 1990s. The style is blessedly ripe with some balance amid black fruits and dark chocolate flavours suggesting a warm site. Much improved over previous versions. I would wait three to five years to open this bottle again but if you have some grilled meat on the barbecue, pop now.Tasted: 07 April 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 49.99 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: PerseusDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
