Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe highly regarded 2020 vintage is evident in this big south Okanagan red wine. Classic blackcurrant, wild dried herbs mark the nose along with red and black fruit reminiscent of black plums, black currants, and savoury olives. The palate is equally rich with a black cherry pie character streaked with cedar and licorice through the finish. Certainly, one of the better BOV cabernet I have tasted of late. We served this with grilled steaks fired medium-rare to offset the rich, dense, youthful tannins. The 2020 grapes were hand harvested from BOV vineyards in Oliver and Osoyoos.Tasted: 26 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
