Espressivo Okanagan Valley Red Blend 2019

2019 LaStella Espressivo.
32 % Cabernet Franc, 31 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 27 % Merlot and 10 % Sangiovese.
A “Super Tuscan” from Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
18 months in French oak with very little new oak.
Red and dark fruit with red currants and black cherries. Savoury and herbal with spicy notes and crisp acidity on the finish but still maintaining texture.
The wine maker is Severine Pinte and she is heading sister wineries at LaStella and Le Vieux Pin in the Okanagan.
She is arguably making some of the best wines in British Columbia.

Agreed. Perfect charcuterie wine. Sweeter than I was expecting, but good acidity to balance it.
