LaStella 2014 Fortissimo (Osoyoos Lake Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $29.99 + taxes
Production: 1374 cases
Date Tasted: April 20th, 2016
Tasting Notes: The 2014 edition of the Fortissimo sees 57% Merlot, 21% Sangiovese 11% Cabernet Franc and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon blended to create a beautiful wine combining brambly berry fruit flavours and acidity, lush tannins, savoury notes and spicy oak. The finish is oh, so long and well balanced with cherry, dried herbs, vanilla and pipe tobacco lingering.
Ready to go now, but will improve with another 2 years of ageing. Drink 2018-2021 for best results..
