Gismondi on Wine

This is a blockbuster red, albeit with a French sensibility, but it's not Skaha this year. The good news is if you love the Napa Valley style this is a poster child, from its rich dark cherry/black raspberry fruit to its roasted earth, cracked pepper and brown spice flavours. BLEND: MERLOT - CABERNET FRANC - CABERNET SAUVIGNON - PETIT VERDOT – MALBEC

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A true expression of the terroir from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley. Cabernet flavours are most evident on the nose, with red bell pepper, currants, cedar and mint, but the palate is where all of the other grapes from the blend (Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah) come together seamlessly, each bringing a crucial component to the final wine. Plenty of dark, dusty cocoa and espresso flavours contribute to a good earthy backbone, while blackberries, black Kalamata olives, prunes and currants provide healthy fruit character. An Okanagan dusty sage element adds another layer of complexity, which becomes a slight minty element on the long, beautiful, chocolaty finish. Good tannins will allow this wine to lay down for a few years.
