CedarCreek Platinum The Last Word 2014

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCedarCreek makes the Platinum Ridge Meritage, as well as this Platinum tier Bordeaux blend, The Last Word. What's the difference? This wine was cofermented with cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec picked together and spent a month-long ferment on the skins in concrete. The merlot was blended in separately to complement the rest, and all spent 20 months in French oak. This is a full, dense, red, with long, ample, well integrated tannins. Firm, dusty black cherry, black raspberry, sweet plum, tobacco, dried herbs, dusty gravels with a core of juicy red fruit. An alluring floral note darts throughout to a spicy, peppery finish. This is tasting very well in youth, but its full reward will come with time in the cellar. An impressive wine.Tasted: 01 March 2018Tasted by: Prices:
