WineDiva's Review

Stautesque, elegant, complex.
Clos du Soleil's flagship estate red is made from four Similkameen vineyards and the 2018 is comprised of: Cabernet Sauvignon (32%), Merlot (42%), Cabernet Franc (19%), Malbec (5%) and Petit Verdot (2%). The product of a warm growing season, the wine was aged 16 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
A classic claret red (dark red--no purplish undertones) it delivers white pepper and licorice root, black currents and cherry liqueur, dried tobacco, cinnamon and shaved bitter chocolate. There is a generous amount of fruit here it is supple and woven, no sharp angles or hollows on this wines, and it's wonderfully weighted across the tongue from start to finish. The finish is lengthy and spiced.
A statuesque and elegant wine.
