Ex Nihilo Night 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNight is Ex Nihilo's ode to Bordeaux mixing cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot all grown on the warm, Black Sage Bench. The protocol is rich, full-bodied, often bruiser-style reds at Ex Nihilo but this 2016 is a pleasant departure offering a red fruited, elegant, medium-bodied red. Perfumed violet leaves, crushed cassis, cherry and wild raspberry preview an elegant palate, one that is drinking very well now, and will over the mid-term. The grapes were destemmed, fermented on skins, pressed to barrel where it rested for MLF and 20 months in French and American oak before blending to create the vintage's style. Well done.Tasted: 05 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices: BC 50.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Ex Nihilo VineyardsDistributors: Icon Fine Wine and Spirits
