Calliope Wines 2013 Figure Eight Red - 86pts

Calliope Wines 2013 Figure Eight Red (Okanagan Valley) BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $15.99
Alcohol: 14%
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.

  1. Just spend a couple more dollars and get any of a dozen much better wines. The 2012 Noble Ridge Meritage is fantastic. Others are 2013 Perseus Merlot, Lake Breeze and Cedar Creek (Merlot and Meritage), Monster Vineyards.
