Township 7 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnother good 2016, this time from Osoyoos' Romar Vineyard. The combination of silt and sand and a super dry, warm, desert climate seems to agree with cabernet sauvignon, a grape that can soak up the heat units. There’s a bit of Blue Terrace fruit that softens the tannin profile and adds freshness and some mid-palate generosity. Most of the wine was aged in 5000L oak fermenters with a small portion in going into barriques, both French and American. There a juicy character here you don’t seldom encounter in cabernet sauvignon with a mix of red cherries and red currants flecked with cedar, cigar and spice. This need time to fully develop, but should be a good one.Tasted: 05 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
