Burrowing Owl Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Member Review by zufrieden:

This Cabernet Sauvignon from the very highly regarded Burrowing Owl Estate in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia Canada is well made - if fairly typical of the variety as grown in this locality. After 1 year of additional bottle aging, the nose is opening up to a mixture of scents such as wild blackberry, cassis, warm earth and cedar. The finish is satisfying long but slightly warm. Otherwise, the wine is balanced and creamy with softening tannins. Cellar for up to 2 more years for best results.

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery:
Balance is a time-honored goal in the making of premium wines and working toward balance is a way of life at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Founder Jim Wyse is committed to balance, well beyond that of the fine, world-class wines being produced. A kind of Hippocratic oath ("to do no harm") underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl.

On the nose a little bell pepper action, tomato, and some smoky cedar. A definite lack of fruit on the nose. Bell pepper on the palate too. Not up to past vintages.
