Border Vines 2018

Border Vines 2018

Osoyoos East Bench interprets Bordeaux: a delicious blend of five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties, with Cabernet Sauvignon being the most prominent component, along with Malbec, Petit Verdot, Carménère and Cabernet Franc. Great depth, intensity of flavour and structure.

The 2018 Border Vines is a dry, medium to full-bodied red wine with a deep ruby colour. Notes of black cherry, cinnamon, blackberry and sweet tobacco leap out of the glass on the nose. On the palate, this mouth-filling wine has fantastic weight and naturally balanced acidity. The nose is complemented nicely by notes of lavender and violet on the palate, with a subtle hint of blueberry pie. This is a well-balanced wine with structured but approachable tannins and toasty oak framework. This vintage of Border Vines shows good concentration of flavour, while being quite drinkable immediately. This wine, while approachable in the glass straightaway, will benefit from aging in the bottle over the next five to eight years.
