Covert Farms Amicitia

Covert Farms Amicitia 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAmicitia [am-ee-CHEE-tee-ah] is Latin for friends, and in 2016, it suits this friendly, organic red blend, perhaps the best yet from this producer. Winemaker Gene Covert blends 37/23/16/14/9/1/ of organic merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec, petit verdot and syrah, creating a vibrant, harmonious red. Look for soft black cherries, raisins, a touch of cloves, and coffee with amazingly silky tannins. You can drink or hold this wine through 2025. Serve now with a creamy mushroom risotto or grilled beef sliced thin. Even if you haven't visited Covert Farms, do so the next time you are in Oliver. This small winery follows organic and biodynamic practices and is located on the stunning 600-acre property where they raise a variety of organic fruits and vegetables.Tasted: 17 December 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.80 winery direct,private wine shops Producer: Covert FarmsDistributors: Winery Direct
