Corcelettes Talus 2019

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt is year ten at Corcelettes, and to celebrate, they are launching a new Talus label to pay homage to the Similkameen mountains, river, and the stony terroir of the windy, wild valley. The bottle and the wine are a bit of a beast, mixing 45/28/21/4/2 merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, and petit verdot. The attack is full on with black olives, cedar, tobacco, with rich, savoury black fruit, and a whack of spice in the back end. In the finish, the balance and textures are spot on and would suggest this has the stuffing to go the distance, which is key, because it will need a decade to hit its stride. Venison or lamb are the best matches at the moment, but I would wait a minimum of five years to get into this red.Tasted: 09 September 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
