Mt. Boucherie Reserve Malbec 2019

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCrafted with fruit from Lazy River Vineyard in the Similkameen, this malbec is pleasantly lighter and fresher in style with 13% abv. It opens with perfumed florals, sandalwood scents, and delicate oak spices on a base of red and dark berries. The tight acidity frames the palate, and ripe yet grippy tannins are wrapped around the juicy fruit. Subtle cracked pepper spiciness and earthy minerality linger on the finish. Just beginning to reveal some tertiary characters, I'm excited to discover how it will evolve in the bottle.Tasted: 22 January 2024Tasted by: Prices:
