Corcelettes Meritage 2015

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaExpect a highly expressive, savoury nose with lifted, ripe, fruit tones from a warm year. It is a little less Similkameen and little more Napa this year no doubt due to some excessive heat spikes. The blend is 60/25/10/5 merlot, cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, malbec and petit verdot. The attack is rich with black fruit flavours flecked with youthful oak. It is mostly the American oak you feel and plenty sagebrush and fennel. This needs some time to lose a bit of its exuberance. Well-made but we prefer the more stony, restrained, Similkameen style from normal, cooler years.Tasted: 09 March 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
