Van Westen Vineyards Vulture 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine has been up and down now for a few years. 2018 was a challenging year, and the wine shows it. Normally rich, it presents skinny with typically spicy savoury notes but not enough fruit or heft to carry the savoury components. It finishes dry and is relatively short. Best to wait for 2019.Tasted: 19 October 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 40.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
