Clos du Soleil Estate Reserve Red 2014

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe estate wines, noted by their white label, are seen as the pinnacle of their portfolio, and reflective of their Keremeos estate vineyards. The 2014 Estate Reserve is a blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, cabernet franc, malbec, aged for 18 months in French oak. You definitely feel the 45 percent merlot in the plush, velveteen plum, with blackberry compote, violet waves, cedar spicing and anise dusted, warming finish. Tannins are dusky, tuggy, but appropriate for the heft of the fruit, and support to the sweetly perfumed plum that lingers on the finish. More chisled acidity would take this to the next level, though this is drinking very well right now.Tasted: 27 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 60.00 winery direct Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
