Black Hills Estate Winery 2015 Carmenere - 91pts

Black Hills Estate Winery 2015 Carmenere (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Limited. Direct from the winery here
Cost: $49.50 + taxes
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: July 8th, 2017

Tasting Notes: If the Black Hill's Carmenere were an entree on a menu its description may read like this... "Lustful, liquefied peppercorn wrapped in a rich blanket of French and American oak and served with a side of cured meats in a black plum and cocoa compote."

Sourced from the winery's two Black Sage Bench vineyards, this Carmenere is sold exclusively to share holders and wine club members due to its ultra small-lot production. An engaging wine, if not polarizing (you love it or you hate it), with oodles of spice throughout. Boysenberry flavours and acidity help balance the long, peppercorn-infused finish. Drink 2018-2021.
