Van Westen Vineyards Voluptuous 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe warm 2015 growing season plays into potent, New World style red blends where rich, ripe black fruit is the goal. The is as big as it gets on the Naramata Bench, and by mixing merlot and cabernet franc the texture and the tannins are tilted toward the softer side of the spectrum, finishing spicy and gritty. Red plums, black licorice, sweet tobacco and a savouring black olive undercurrent suggest this wine will comfortably age for another three to five years. For the moment, grilled beef or rich cheeses are the match.Tasted: 19 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.00 winery direct and private wine shops march '06 Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
