Aged, powerful, brooding.
This premium red from Pentage Winery above Skaha Lake near Penticton is a proprietary blend which includes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot; all components were aged in oak barrels for 18 months prior to blending.
Always released with age, this typically powerful red doles out black fruits and peppery spices, bacon fat and espresso, dark chocolate and leather with dried cherries at the core. The palate is equally deep and dark with mocha flavours. It has a brooding sort of complexity, smoothed out tannins and a long bittersweet cocoa and dried herbal finish.
