River Stone Estate Winery 2013 Stones Throw (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $24.90 (including taxes)
Date Tasted: August 1st, 2016
Tasting Notes: One of the more food-friendly, California-style, ripe reds produced in the Okanagan Valley today. A blend of 78% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec with its residual sugar well-balanced by smooth, medium-intense tannins and a warm blanket of Summer berry acidity. Ripe blackberry, cherry-cola, spicy-oak and vanilla bean dominate the concentrated, yet, soothing nose and the mouth-watering palate. Very flexible, food pairing-wise, but grilled meats like sweet and tangy, Korean BBQ dishes would be ideal. Drink 2016-2019.
