Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Lunessence Cabernet Sauvignon

Lunessence Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaI haven’t seen this label since 2013, but there has been some nice improvement. This cabernet sauvignon is sourced from a single vineyard in Oliver, and is aged in Hungarian and French oak. For the most part it is physiologically ripe. There’s a lot of freshness here, but also some super firm, dry tannins and it is going to take some time for them to subside. There is plenty of acid to keep the wine alive, but will there be enough fruit? If you are going to open this be sure to serve it with something rich and meaty to tear into the awkward tannins and balance off that dry finish.Tasted: 18 April 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 34.99 winery direct, private wine shops, restaurants Producer: Lunessence Winery & VineyardDistributors: Winery Direct
