Pentâge Winery Pentâge 2013

Skaha Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTake an impressive vintage, 2013, and a flagship blend of 34/23/20/17/6 cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot, age it six years and this is what you get. The nose is intense, almost still youthful, offering ripe red/black fruit with similar follow up on the palate where ripe black cherries and toasted oak mingle effortlessly. The oak is fairly prevalent, in a 2013 American and French oak way (a lot has changed since then in BC). I like the fresh, high-intensity black fruit that permeates the blend and calls for a substantial piece of grilled meat or lamb for maximum enjoyment. Ready to drink, but there is no rush.Tasted: 03 May 2020Tasted by: Prices:
