Noble Ridge Reserve Meritage 2015

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Bordeaux blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec from the winery's Okanagan Falls estate. After warmish ferment, this spends 15 months in French and American oak (40 percent new). Layers of blackberry, cassis, tobacco, leather on this savoury, spicy full-bodied, soft-palated red. The tannins are sueded but ample, pinning in the sides. A little more clarity and less wood presence would free this Okanagan Falls red and to take it next level. For moment a favourite cut of steak grilled woudl be the match.Tasted: 14 August 2018Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices:
