Calliope Wines 2013 Figure Eight Red (Okanagan Valley) BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Date Tasted: January 4th, 2016
Tasting Notes: Should appeal to drinkers of Apothic Red with its mellowed tannins, front-loaded red and dark berry fruit and mouth-watering, bright acidity on the finish. Yet, there's more to work with here in this blend of 58% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, 8% Malbec and 4% Syrah with additional aromas and flavours of vanilla bean, white pepper, spicy plum sauce and oak. Drink now-2017.
