The Hermit 2018

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA new release from Kismet Winery, designed and blended by long-time BC wine agent educator, turned negociant Ingo Grady. The Hermit is a nod to the old French custom of dosing or Hermitageing a Bordeaux red blend with a bump of extra-strength syrah. The combination features a 60/18/15/7 mix of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, syrah and malbec. After all the tough talk, this is a pleasantly soft, juicy, easy-sipping red with a dusting of spice that slides down effortlessly. Reminiscent of a South Australia/Languedoc cross.Tasted: 16 October 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 estimated retail Producer: Kismet Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
