Thornhaven XV

Thornhaven XV 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe XV opens with a reduced nose of meat and pepper over blackberry and cherry. The blend is an unusual mix of roughly 60/40 syrah and cabernet franc. The attack is lifted with red fruits and fairly prominent acidity, and the finish is fresh and peppery. Pork tenderloin is the fit for the moment; otherwise, this needs more time in the bottle.Tasted: 17 July 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 34.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Thornhaven Estates WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
