Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWinemaker Kent MacDonald has quietly taken Burrowing Owl to another level. No wild reinventions or reimaginations here, just solid winemaking. Take this cabernet sauvignon. There's density and freshness to the fruit; integrated, quality oak; and diligent tannin management (and a pinch of residual sugar) that makes this structured but drinkable now. A herbal lift would add a missing aromatic component, but otherwise this checks all of the boxes.Tasted: 17 October 2020Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
