Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Coyote Bowl Vineyard
A goodie in my Cellar..( tasted Jan 2018)
A serious Good Cabernet is hard to find and I feel like everyone comes into the store and they find out we only carry B.C Cabs they recoil in disappointment. I am here to tell you that B.C can make anything! Yes that is how diverse our climate and terroirs are.. . About 15 % of our vineyards in B.C are dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon.
The cool thing is that Osoyoos ( Black Sage Bench where Coyote Bowl Is ) gets roughly about 1535 hours of (GDD) growing degree days. Directly in line with Napa California ‘s (GDD) of 1450. So here is a great example of a Cabernet Sauvignon B.C with Kim Pullen at the Helm.
The first sniff is a fragrant nose of Black Currant and cassis This ruby red wine has intensity with savoury and Sage notes, Spice and Coffee and green beans. The finish was long with great structure and balanced tannins.
4/5 for Value and taste
