Fort Berens Meritage 2014

British Columbia, CanadaAnother slightly reduce nose so splash decant. Super ripe fruit nose with dark fruit aromas mark this blend of merlot/cabernet franc/cabernet sauvignon from Lillooet, Okanagan and Similkameen vineyards. Stewed black fruit, resin, roasted coffee and tar mark the palate all seasoned with steak spices. Tannins are smoothed out, making this youthful wine approachable now, especially with steak. Exuberant at this point but it should settle in over the next two or three years.Tasted: 07 November 2016Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
