Luke Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley, Washington, United StatesThe 2017 edition of Luke Cab comes in at 96 percent cabernet sauvignon, with a drop of petit verdot and malbec. It is a definite upgrade over 2016, and while wildfire smoke was a problem across parts of Washington, I did not find it to be much of an issue with this label. There is more intensity of aromas and flavours in 2017, led by a more Washington like nose of black cherries and dark chocolate. It presents with a little more weight and more chocolate, coffee, and black fruit on the palate. Smooth and easy-sipping, you can get into this wine, especially with a favourite grilled entrée.Tasted: 19 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 43.99 estimated retail in select private wine shops Producer: Luke WinesDistributors: The Drinks List
