Burrowing Owl 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
A complex and truly south Okanagan Valley expression of Cabernet Sauvignon. The colour is deep purple and the aromas range from cassis, plum, raspberry, blueberry and black cherry through to vanilla oak notes, cedar, cinnamon, violet and distinctive dried wild sage brush. The palate is full of structure, built to last for a decade or more, with plenty of acidity, tannin and flavour intensity. Vibrant fruit flavours of raspberry, cherry, cassis and red currant lead on to diverse charred meat, vanilla, dark chocolate and dried herbs with a long finish. Pair with smoky grilled lamb sausages or an intensely flavoured charcuterie plate.
