Van Westen Vineyards Voluptuous 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2019 Voluptuous is back on track with a luxurious blend of 67/33 merlot and cabernet franc from 17 year old vines grown at Naramata's Boothe Vineyard on silty clay/loam soils. An enticing, savoury jacket is wrapped around the ripe, juicy blueberry, blackberry, black olive, and cedar dusted in a touch of baking spice and sagebrush. The tannins are firm but fine, allowing for bottle aging of three to seven years, or drinking now with grilled beef, mushrooms, or root vegetables.Tasted: 16 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
