Lake Breeze Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Langhorne Creek 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine displays a complex array of mint and blackcurrant aromas along with some cedary oak nuances. The concentrated palate has a lovely silky texture, showing chocolate and cassis flavours and a wonderfully long finish. With careful cellaring this wine will age superbly for at least the next 10 years. The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon uses fruit produced from 40 year old vines on the Follett family vineyard, situated on the Bremer Flood plain at Langhorne Creek. Traditional open fermentation was employed followed by maturation in 70% French and 30% American oak barriques for 20 months, prior to bottling.

Lake Breeze Vineyards is located in Naramata, British Columbia, 12 kilometres north of Penticton on Naramata Road in the sourth central Okanagan Valley. The charming Naramata Bench countryside is dotted with several other small wineries and B&B’s making for a perfect wine tasting experience. Plentiful accommodation, restaurants and entertainment is available in Penticton and the village of Naramata. We have 17 acres under vine and grow nine different varietals including pinot blanc, semillon, merlot and cabernet franc. Our annual production is currently 9,000 cases making us a relatively small winery. However, good things come in small packages – we boast several award winning wines, a popular patio lunch, a new self-catering cottage and one of the prettiest settings anywhere. Our wineshop is open Fri-Sun in April from 12-4. May 1 through October we are open daily from 11-5:30. At Lake Breeze, we believe in taking the natural fruit flavours of the grape and transferring them to the bottle with the minimum amount of manipulation. Through careful and meticulous vineyard management, we produce fruit of the highest quality in order to create our special collection of wines. Read less
