Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Burrowing Owl's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon showcases the expressive and beautifully balanced fruit they're producing from their Black Sage Bench and Osoyoos vineyards in the south of the Okanagan. Savoury and mineral-driven, with refreshing dark fruits, fresh herbs, and subtle rustic notes, Burrowing Owl's 2017 Cabernet is a beautiful expression of a fine Okanagan red, and perfectly suited for enjoying with premium grilled steaks or firm aged cheese. Enjoy 2020-2026. Tasted June 2020. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
