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.

TASTING NOTES

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.

FOOD PAIRINGS

Enjoy with peppercorn pâté; lamb chops; grilled steaks; beef, bean and vegetable stews; beef brisket; leg of lamb; pot roast and root vegetables.
