Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the hottest growing season on record in the Okanagan, this has sucked up all of the scorching desert heat in the Oliver and Osoyoos vineyards and expressed it through this massive cedar structured red. Ripe and dense sweet cherry, cassis vanilla jam, medicinal notes, resin, smoked paprika on the powerful palate, one that gained stature through time in French, American, Hungarian and Russian oak, 20 percent of which was new. A lavish style, wrapped with gummy / powdery tannins, and best enjoyed with a lengthy decant and a partnering with lamb.Tasted: 04 August 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 35.00 winery direct, private and VQA wine shops AB 48.00 private wine shops ON 44.95 LCBO Producer: Burrowing Owl VineyardsDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
