Da Silva Vinho Tinto 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Tinto is a blend of four estate vineyards blending a mix of merlot, syrah, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, and malbec, but the plan is to go Portuguese in the coming years when some newer plantings come online. It is aged 24+ months in a split of 50/50 American and French medium+ toast wood. Look for a sweet, lifted oak entry mixed with toasted smoky notes, with black cherry lurking throughout. It is all a bit wild, but it will be fine with a thin crust pizza or a roast chicken to smooth out the edges. Decant the wine for 30 minutes to serve at its best.Tasted: 18 August 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Da Silva Vineyards and WineryDistributors: BCWineshop
