In my opinion, Clos du Soleil is absolutely one of the top wineries in the Province! Under the direction of winemaker Michael Clark (who trained in Bordeaux and Geneva) they are making fantastic, elegant wines from mostly Bordeaux grape varieties farmed biodynamically in the Similkameen Valley.
At $26.90, the 2014 Celestiale is one if the best value red blends in BC! It’s a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Aromatically I get ripe raspberry, black currant, Italian plum and a touch of fresh tarragon. It’s full and rich on the palate with ripe, dusty tannins, mineral tones and long finish with plum, sour cherry and a hints of vanilla and clove. This delicious blend will pair perfectly with Christmas roast prime rib or leg of lamb!
