63% Cabernet Sauvingon, 26% Merlot, 11% Carménère

Year 3 of the Lariana Blend is dominated by Cabernet Sauvingon 63%, Carménère 11%, (all estate grown) with additional Merlot 26% from the Naramata Bench. Yielding aromas of ripe crushed blackberries and black currants, the structure is further supported by their same silken richness. Dark plums laced with a chocolate licorice note continue to the intensely generous flavourful finish.
