Bench 1775 Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah 2015

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSmoked black cherry, ripe black raspberry, smoked meats, and black pepper on a thick, branchy, dense palate, ringed with medicinal resinous pitch and hugged by tuggy, black tea tannins. Mint pops up now and again, providing a welcome blast of freshness to this full bodied, ripe, thick red. There's a tense interplay between ripe fruit and unripe fruit here that doesn't settle well without a pork chop intermediary. Osoyoos sourced blend of cabernet sauvignon and syrah (plus five percent merlot), that spent eight months in French oak, and suffers the heat wave sun saturation of 2015.Tasted: 15 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 29.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bench 1775 WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
