"Naysayer" 2013

Cab Franc/Merlot

The 2013 vintage had it's share of blood, sweat and tears in the Okanagan. Early bud break, a wet June followed by a smoking hot July resulted in accelerated canopy growth and was rounded out by a wet cold fall.

Naysayers would call for a challenged wine as a result, but winemaking skill shines through here: judicous management of cropping and sorting on harvest has produced a lovely flavorful and balanced expression of Naysayer in the 2013 vintage. Ripe tannins, balanced acidity and a lower alcohol than on previous vintages have blended beautifully. 


Tasting Notes:

Rounded notes of strawberry, cherry, black currant and sweet tobacco in the aromatics and restrained notes of red and black fruits with refined tannins in the mouth and and a lovely slightly peppery finish.
