Cabernet Merlot 2014
ABOUT THE WINE
The grapes for our Cabernet Merlot come from several vineyards in the south Okanagan and Similkameen Valley. The blend consists of 45% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc. The wine was tank fermented and aged in older (80%)American oak and (20%) French oak barrels for 14 months.
This Rooster shows great ‘posture’ as he moves through the flock. Ever-changing notes of blue plum, black cherry, currant and smoky oak escape from the glass. This medium-bodied red has soft, smooth tannins, and fruit-flavours of cherry, blueberry and plum, accented by a touch of spice. Enjoy now through 2019.
Enjoy with peppercorn pâté; lamb chops; grilled steaks; beef, bean and vegetable stews; beef brisket; leg of lamb; pot roast and root vegetables.
