A robust Bordeaux blend including all five classic varietals showing a tremendous aging potential and a balanced approach between power and elegance. The Red Icon is one of the most iconic wines of British Columbia and shows consistency of style year in and year out. The 2020 was barrel aged for 18 months in 30% new French oak. On the nose, expressive aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, dark chocolate, cedar box and a hint of fresh herbs showcase a dark and concentrated wine. The palate is rich, dense, muscular and articulate showing great expression of ripe Merlot with plum and cassis flavours but also distinctive elements of Cab Franc like cherry and chocolate. There’s also the herbaciousness of the Cab Sauv, and don’t forget the floral intensity and spice of the Petit Verdot. This is another EPIC showing of the Red Icon, and five years of cellaring will reward you greatly. A potential candidate for my Top 10 Wines of the Year.
