Van Westen Vineyards Vulture 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere was no problem ripening fruit during the warm 2015 growing season, something evident as soon as you smell this wine in the glass. It has all the leafy, savoury sagebrush notes you could ask for, but the black raspberry and even blueberry suggest fully ripe berries were taken to the crush pad. There is still a pinch of tannin to deal with via bottle age or a rich, mushroom covered T-Bone steak. Boisterous and fun, you can enjoy this now or hold through 2020.Tasted: 24 September 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
