Powerful, spicy, complex.
This Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend (with 40% Merlot) comes from grapes harvested on T7's estate Blue Terrace vineyard on the North Bench in Oliver.
Always a succulent wine, the 2017 stays true. The nose is earthy and woven with savoury spices, black cherry and wild red berries, pipe-tobacco, leather and graphite. It has a silky attack and grows more powerful mid-palate. Great complexity and balance, it has a load of bittersweet cocoa and espresso flavours and the finish is brazenly spicy.
Worth note, it has quite a hot finish, weighing in at a shy 15% alcohol. Pair: Grilled steaks, mushroom risotto, hearty stews and rustic soups.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
