Savoury, plush, lengthy.
The 5th Element red earth, wind, water, fire and wine is a Merlot dominant blend with Syrah, Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot picked from estate vineyards, Blind Creek in the Similkameen Valley and the Castle Vineyard on the Golden Mile. It spent 18 months in French and American oak (35% new).
Kirsch black plum and vanilla aromas mingle with baking spices, Turkish coffee, cedar, violets and chocolate. It is inky and textural; coffee chocolate, dusty plums, sage and toasted spice flavours line the palate. Balance and power.
