Upper Bench Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Grown Limited Release 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Upper Bench's estate vineyard, this luscious, densely concentrated cabernet sauvignon speaks to low yields (2.45 tons per acre in 2017) just as much as it does the Naramata Bench. Expect expressive bramble, black currant, and sweet herbs wrapped in sweet oak spices and chocolate after aging in French barriques for 21 months (30% new). There's impressive depth and weight, but this is still tightly wound and needs time in the bottle to reach its full potential. A touch warm on the finish.Tasted: 04 June 2021Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
