Narrative Non-Fiction Red Blend by Okanagan Crush Pad 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe mix is 67/33 cabernet sauvignon/cabernet franc from a certified organic vineyard in Osoyoos. Eight months in concrete has given this red a fragrant, black fruit nose and a very juicy upfront attack but there are some, rich, grippy tannins in the back end suggesting it needs time in the bottle to settle. The minty, medicine chest cherry has a spicy mineral undercurrent that runs tod a savoury fresh finish. Grilled sausages would be a fine choice today if you are drinking for the fruit and high energy it brings to the glass, but personally I would wait a couple of years before trying this vintage again.Tasted: 29 December 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 19.90 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Okanagan Crush Pad WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
