Powerful, inky, complex.
Clos du Soleil's flagship estate red is made from Similkameen grown Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (30%), Cabernet Franc (19%), Malbec (6%) and Petit Verdot (7%). It was matured 18months in French oak barrels before bottling and additional ageing.
It is an inky red, with sweet earthy aromas including cherries and prune, graphite, cocoa, pipe tobacco, vanilla and brown spices. The palate reflects power; it has a silky attack the starts to grip mid-palate. Deep fruit is layered with cocoa and spice. Intense, almost brooding, I would suggest decanting this powerful and complex red.
