Mission Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Okanagan Valley 2013

I quite liked the 2013 Mission Hill reserve cabernet sauvignon.  A touch more than the 2011 (see my review here) but both are still very pleasant.  The 2013 has a classic medium bodied cabernet expression perhaps without showing any “above and beyond” characters through the palate.  Tobacco, cedar, leather and dried herbs round things up.  Correct and well made.
