Natalie's Score: 90/100

This robust, juicy, mouth-watering wine has layers of ripe black fruit and some smoke. Good acidity through the mid-palate for tangy meat sauces. This robust BC red wine is made from the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grape and was aged for 6 months in French, Slovakian and neutral oak barrels. Decant 1-2 hours.

Reviews and Ratings

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

This incredibly smooth and expressive Cabernet from Lunessence Winery & Vineyards showcases the great quality that the Okanagan Valley is producing and becoming increasingly renowned for around the world. With its super deep ruby red colour, the nose shows rich dark black fruit, anise, cassis, black plum, with sweet pipe tobacco. The palate is creamy and smooth and remarkably well balanced. This gorgeous Okanagan Cabernet is ready for immediate enjoyment and will age beautifully over the next 5+ years. A true meditation wine. Tasted July 2017. 92 points.

Julian Park rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The wine was made to achieve terroir flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon, full of forest fruit, vanilla, bacon and black leather underlined with subtle creamy oak. Decanting recommended.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby red. Opulent, rich, smooth, chewy mouthfeel. Well balanced and integrated alcohol, declared at 14.5% ABV. Showing floral and fruity with grippy tannins. Blackberry, violet petals, plum, hint of vanilla bean and tobacco leaf. Tasted May 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich, chewy, dark with deeply concentrated notes of black currant, stewed black plum, and black licorice. Sweet jammy berry flavours overpower this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. Enjoy with Indian beef curry (sweet with heat). Tasted May 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Grapes for this wine were hand picked on 10.10.2015 at 26.9 brix. The wine went through full malolactic fermentation. Ageing took six months in variety of Slovakian, French and neutral oak, then in stainless steel tanks for six months, and finally three months in a bottle. This wine was made to achieve terroir flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon, full of forest fruit, vanilla and black leather underlined with subtle creamy oak. Decanting recommended. Unfined and unfiltered
