Mission Hill Family Estate Oculus 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2014 Oculus blends 50/24/21/5 merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot, all from their estate Osoyoos vineyard, and all fermented and aged in French oak (one quarter of which was new). Fleshy black and red fruit, ample cassis, tobacco is plush with density, and brooding in youth. Cool river stones set grippy / gritty tannins, with impressive freshness that easily counters the weight. This is a well built wine, and one that will easily improve over the next decade. Loving the direction that these wines are taking under Darryl Brooker and team.Tasted: 19 October 2018Tasted by: Prices:
