Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon Howe Vineyard 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis single vineyard cabernet sauvignon, sourced from Howe Vineyard on the Naramata Bench, saw 28 days of skin contact before being drained and pressed to French barriques (14% new) for 19 months. It's an elegant, Bordelais-styled cabernet that combines juicy wild berry with savoury notes of dried herbs, graphite, and cedar. The medium-bodied palate is succulent and finely textured, with a brisk finish that is calling for rich French bistro fare. Only 170 cases produced.Tasted: 01 May 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices: BC 48.00 wine club member exclusive Producer: Hillside WineryDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
