Covert Farms Amicitia 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAmicitia is Latin for friends, an apt name for the 2017 vintage of this friendly red blend. With grapes from the Covert's organic McIntyre Bluff estate, planted between 2006-09, and at 420m, this blends merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, malbec, petit verdot, and syrah into a fuller red. Dusky black and red fruited, with cherry, blackberry, roasted coffee leading the way, and cedar-hewn tannins gripping the sides. The finish cuts a bit short with some bitter cherry notes, but would be mitigated with a root veg or beef stew.Tasted: 10 January 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.80 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Covert Farms Family EstateDistributors: BCWineshop
