This is a very good cabernet sauvignon from Mission Hill in the Okanagan Valley in Canada and the 2017 vintage. It has aromatics of spice and brooding blackcurrants. The palate has ripe and fleshy tannins and good length on the finish. This wine is enjoyable right now, but will also suit cellaring for 5 years. Rating: Very Good. Abv: 13.9%. Price: ~$40.
