C.C. Jentsch Small Lot Series Blanc de Noirs 2018

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis sweeter rose channels its southern Okanagan provenance through super ripe, sweet strawberry, candied peach, pear nectar and cinnamon spicing. The palate is somewhat syrupy, though there's a rise of acidity to keep this somewhat aloft. This is estate merlot, macerated for 24 hours on skins before stainless ferment and brief aging. A swell of RS is best taken with a brisk chill.Tasted: 04 June 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 22.90 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: C.C.
