Church & State, Coyote Bowl Series, Malbec, Okanagan Valley, BC, 2011, 14.5% abv.

Church + State MalbecPurchased in September 2014 at the winery, we opened this on Saltspring Island with charcuterie and BBQ’d sausages in summer 2015.

Opaque purple and very young with intense aromas of ripe, purple plum, black cherry, burnished leather and fresh pine, the Coyote Bowl is dry on the palate.

Strong flavours of ripe, Bing cherry, damson plum, fresh rosemary and thyme with black pepper dominate.  Sweet vanilla augments the fresh and fruity character with a slight imbalance with the high alcohol.

This WSET Good wine is for the next time you beat your chest and yell out ‘BBQ’!
