2016 Blind Creek Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2016 BCC Cabernet Sauvignon has a gorgeous dark red, with purple tints. The nose is vibrant and showcases classic and complex aromas of black cherry, black currant, leather, tobacco, vanilla and cream. Purity of Cabernet Sauvignon character is evident in the savoury pallet with intense notes of cassis, black sage and cedar. The 2016 BCC Cabernet Sauvignon is rich, round, silky and delicate, but with concentrated fruit, fresh acidity and generous fine-grained tannins. This well-structured wine is built for ageing.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from the Blind Creek Vineyard in the Similkameen Valley. This is a now-legendary vineyard from which a number of outstanding wines have been made. Blind Creek is a warm sight that allows for long maturation times of the fruit, well into later October, and sometimes early November each year. The fruit from this vineyard is always dark, concentrated, and powerfully structured, but the tannins are so fine that the wines are soft and silky in the mouth.
