2017 Phantom Creek Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

 
Vineyard Designation
Phantom Creek Vineyard

Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in our Phantom Creek Vineyard, a site with maximal sun exposure that benefits from the Southern Okanagan’s intense growing season. The palate is rounded with dark berry, spice and hints of toast. This wine offers a nice long finish that is worthy of a moment of contemplation.

Winemaker Notes
2017 growing season got off to a slow start with bud break occurring nearly two weeks later than average. But this was followed by a hot and dry summer that really allowed the grapes to fully ripen. This was also a year of reduced yields however, it resulted in small, concentrated berries that produced wines of pronounced depth and intensity.
Vineyard Notes
Established by pioneering viticulturist Richard Cleave in 1996, Phantom Creek Vineyard is located on the lower terrace of the Black Sage Bench just above the warm valley floor. The tiny, seven-acre parcel is planted primarily to Cabernet Sauvignon. Since the early 2000s, fruit from the property has been used for single vineyard bottlings, a tradition we proudly honour and continue today at the winery.
