  • BC Okanagan Valley VQA Skaha Bench
  • 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

A spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon from a special terroir overlooking the lake on the Skaha Bench. A very perfumed wine on the nose, with forest floor and pine needles, pencil lead, deep dark fruits like blackcurrants and blackberry, cedar and black tea. Full body, this Cabernet Sauvignon is tangy and energetic with a clear line of fresh tannins and acidity. Very attractive now in a youthful and vibrant way, but this will be SPECTACULAR in three to four years. Dark, fleshy and expansive on the palate, which offers flavours of blackberry jam, ripe raspberry, balsamic, crushed gravel, spice, new leather, licorice, mint and crème de cassis. The 2021 seems to have an extra dimension of textural intensity - it's an intensity that is hugely appealing. This is a very special wine. Another potential candidate for my Top 10 Wines of the Year. Decanting is strongly recommended! - Carl Boucher

The Skaha Bench is a west-facing slope to Skaha Lake, stretching about 10 kilometers from the southern outskirts of Penticton. Layers of glacial deposits and volcanic ash lend complexity to the wines while the location is perfectly suited for many grape varietals.

About Painted Rock Estate Winery: In 2004 John and Trish Skinner purchased the renowned 56 acre "BlackHawk" property on Skaha Lake in Penticton. Renamed for the 500 year old pictographs bordering the property, Painted Rock has gone on to win countless awards for their estate-only wines, led by winemaking consultant Alain Sutre and winemaker Gabriel Reis.

About John Skinner: John was a stockbroker in Vancouver for more than 25 years, during which time he became an avid wine enthusiast with a dream to start his own winery. John has remained passionately involved in every aspect of the winery since it’s first release in late 2009. John also works tirelessly to help build the international profile and brand awareness of Canadian wines.
