Calliope Wines 2012 Figure Eight Red (Okanagan Valley) BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Date Tasted: August 20th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Juicy, friendly and well balanced, the Calliope Figure Eight makes a nice, straight-forward, entry-level, red blend of 54% Merlot, 34% Syrah and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon, delivering ripe plum and sweet tobacco aromas on the aromatic nose and a variety of red fruit flavours on the front-loaded palate. The short, but, effective finish is driven by mannered, wild berry acidity, adding freshness to the palate. Pair with lean cuts of beef or game. Drink now-2015.
