Another Painted Rock wine made in a bold and robust way, with nearly 15% alcohol definitely expressing a house style that helps this producer become a staple of the Okanagan. A great blend of ripe fruits, density and savouriness provides a solid wine with great aging potential. The nose is perfumed with notes of violet, potpourri, pine, and a mix of red and black fruits like blackberry, red currant and dark cherry. The palate is well structured with a solid frame of acidity and tannic structure. While those tannins are omni-present at the moment, they are soft enough to make the mouthfeel appealing and pleasant at an early stage. Dominant flavours of cassis, fig, red currant and black cherry (with a hint of green pepper) on the front-palate open the way for the savoury and juniper components of the mid palate. The finish offers vanilla, chocolate and a multitude of spices which linger for a good amount of time.
