Unsanctioned Series – Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Unfined. Unfiltered. Unsanctioned. Trust us.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Our Unsanctioned Series is reserved for very special wines. The Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in a sun-drenched vineyard in Osoyoos. The wine was fermented in a small lot and aged for 21 months in 50% new French oak. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Only 55 cases produced.
An elegant, well-balanced wine that is approachable right out of the bottle, but with enough structure to enable cellaring and enjoyment over the next 5-10 years. Ripe black cherry, dark chocolate, cassis, rich earth and fresh tobacco jump out of the glass. This wine is elegant, rich and ripe with firm tannins and bright acidity. We found toasted nuts, bold spices and mixed berry compote with a long, elegant finish.
A nicely structured wine like this really shines when paired with the right dish. To help soften the tannins, look to the proteins found in red meats. Try this with a prime rib roast, a juicy steak, or for a more casual dinner, our favourite Blue Cheese Burger recipe (click link for recipe).
