|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine is showing beautifully in 2012. Lots of black cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant greet the nose with a nice kick of sweet spice. Aged 18 months in oak, the tannins are still showy, but not confrontational. On the palate, this Bordeaux-style red wine from Keremeos in the Okanagan, is carried by well-integrated red and black fruits, plump plum, and a pleasant oak backbone. Full bodied and dry, this is the kind of wine that you'll want to save and share on a special occasion. Clos du Soleil is making premium wines at affordable prices.
