Muscular, brooding, toasted.
This Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot (to soften the structure of the Cabernet) blend comes from T7's estate Blue Terrace vineyard on the North Bench in Oliver; it was barrel aged for 24 months in both barriques and large format French oak.
A brooding wine with a consistent succulent character, the 2018 offers charred spices and black currents layered with red plum, tobacco, leather, dark cocoa and licorice root aromas. Powerful and muscular; cocoa, toasted spice, espresso and dark fruit flavours dominate a boldly structured but balanced palate. Pair: Grilled steaks, mushroom risotto, hearty stews and rustic soups.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
