Van Westen Vineyards V 2014

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaConcentrated and compact, the 2014 vintage of V (Roman numeral five) is a blend of five Naramata grapes from two vineyards within 2km from the winery. Merlot, malbec, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot fill the fleshy palate, one smoothed and silken. Crushed florals, dark cherries, espresso is all perfumed with violets and framed with gritty spicing and thorny pitch. Decant this youthful wine now, and serve with bigger red meats.Tasted: 09 March 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
