Made from fruit of the Storm Haven Vineyards in Okanagan Falls and the SoleTerre Vineyard in Oliver, this red is a blend of Merlot (66%), Cabernet Franc (18%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (13%), which is named for an illustrious corner of the Le Mans raceing circut in France.
It is a fragrant mix of sweet red and black currents, peppery spice and plums, dark mocha and raspberry notes. It's very nicely balanced - it's juicy but retains its structure and focus. The finish is long with fine dry tannins and flavours of spiced cocoa.
Pair with grilled meats, hearty stews or spaghetti Bolognese.
