Nk'Mip Cellars Mer'r'iym Meritage 2010

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMer'r'iym is a 48/35/7/5/5 mix of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec, petit verdot and it's a blockbuster red. Warm rich and inviting it pulls you into the glass; it's warm, rich and mouth filling but with that stylish Randy Picton touch. Balance and finesse battle the heat and power mid-palate along with blueberries and black currants that disappears into the mocha toasted flavours of French and American oak barrels. Youthful and just beginning to come together this will need another three years to reach maturity in bottle. Serve now venison or beef.Tasted: 11 November 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 50.00 specialty listing, vqa and private stores, winery direct Producer: Nk'Mip CellarsDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
