Clos du Soleil Estate Reserve Red 2017

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Estate Reserve is the flagship red at Clos du Soleil that is farmed biodynamically and certified organic. It opens with Similkameen intensity: bony, rich in savoury black fruit, with a mineral undercurrent. In 2017 merlot took the lead at 47%. The rest of the mix is cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, petit verdot, and malbec. It is all fermented and aged separately for 18 months before the final assemblage. Plums, violets, crushed stones, black pepper, cedar, it is all here. It gets two more years of bottle age, but really, this wine is a decade away from its plateau.
