Tasting Notes: Beyond its tell-tale, Southern Okanagan watermark of dried herbs, LaStella's "La Sophia" is a doppelgänger for the top-end Cabernet Sauvignon that come out of Washington State's Walla Walla Valley. Both complex and ultra-refined with layers of dark fruit, vanilla extract, licorice, sweet coffee grinds, mint and a hint of graphite already developing. Gentle, persistent herbs'n'spice permeates the elegant nose and well balanced, feminine palate with fine tannins and berry acidity contributing structure and length. This dark purple-hued beauty will evolve over a decade-plus. Drink 2017-2023+.
