Clos du Soleil Signature 2017

British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Signature, the winery's aptly named flagship blend, mixes cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot, and malbec from various vineyards in the Similkameen Valley. Each block was harvested separately, destemmed and native fermented in concrete before moving to French oak for 15 months aging. Upfront and powerful, this is a dense and fleshy blend of wild blackberry, ripe cassis, thorns, scrubby mint and desert sage. There's a freshness inherent that carries this bigger wine effortlessly to a spiced finish. This year has a sweet ripeness that makes it easy to drink and enjoy now, but a structure that will ensure it rests well in your cellar for a few years yet.Tasted: 26 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 45.90 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Clos du Soleil WineryDistributors: Select Wines & Spirits
