Burrowing Owl Meritage 2014

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere is nothing shy about the 2014, a mix of 31/22/22 merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc, with the rest split between malbec and petit verdot. This red is full-bodied, showing generous amounts of spicy oak and chocolate, with some telltale south Okanagan sage and just enough freshness to keep it together. Definitely more Napa than Euro, with rich, soft tannins that coat the palate. Best now with fire-grilled beef or let it rest for five years to gather itself. Very good to excellent length.Tasted: 22 August 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 45.00 winery direct AB 50.00 fine wine shops Producer: Burrowing Owl VineyardsDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
