Winemaker's Cut Q and A 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaJason Priestley, Hollywood actor/director; media broadcaster Terry David Mulligan; and winemaker Michal Mosny (Winemaker's Cut) are behind the Q&A. I revisited the 2020 red blend a year later to see where the wine is at in the bottle. The blend is 45/38/13/4 cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, and petit verdot, which enjoyed ideal growing conditions in 2020. The bouquet is beginning to toss vibrant, savoury desert scrub aromas mixed with cedar and hints of cinnamon. The palate is a full-bodied mix of blueberries and sweet black raspberries with some intense clove in the finish. It seems a bit out of sorts now, like many reds that fade into the bottle for a year or two before reemerging. The texture remains inviting while the acidity kicks up a bit, with some balsamic notes in the back. Youthful and rambunctious, this would be fine with a Tomahawk steak now, but another year or two in the bottle should repay your patience.Tasted: 24 November 2023Tasted by: Prices:
