Quails' Gate Old Vines Foch 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Quails' Gate Osoyoos Vineyard is the south Okanagan Valley home to this foch and the original plantings that first went into the ground in 1978, hand picked every year. The attack is open, rich, and packed full of jammy, black fruits with a wild undercurrent mixing licorice, cloves, and molasses from front to back. Each year this wine gets incrementally cleaner and more respectable, although I suspect it sells out in any event very early on in its release cycle given its wide course of fans. The classic hamburger red also can tolerate older mature cheeses.Tasted: 07 December 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.99 BCLS AB 24.99 private wine shops ON 27.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
