CedarCreek Platinum The Last Word 2014

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Last Word is the pinnacle red at CedarCreek, made only in the very best years. It is a month-long co-fermentation (on the skins), in concrete, of 26/31/19 cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec, all picked at once. The merlot, 24 percent, is added before it all goes to barrel for 20 months in French oak. This is a rich, dense red, full of black cherry, black raspberry with some noisy baking spices and some youthful dry tannins in a peppery finish. This needs time to lose some of its extracted character although I suspect many more will be attracted now to its boisterous, hedonistic style. Best with grilled meats.Tasted: 29 March 2018Tasted by: Prices:
