A very well-made medium body Malbec with 100% Naramata Bench Estate fruits. I detect some Argentinian style in this wine without being heavy and jammy, showcasing purity, terroir-driven minerality and a great lengthy finish. The nose is filled with blackberry, cassis and violet. On the palate the first wave comes in with blueberry and dark cherry before turning to plum and black currants. Licorice, tobacco and smoke entertain most of the middle palate. The final act is bright with soft tannins and striking acidity, followed by a never-ending black pepper and clove lingering finish. There’s not many Malbecs at this level in Canada. (CWC, 09/02/2022).
