Five Vineyards by Mission Hill Cabernet Merlot 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is not my favourite BC blend. The cabernet is always harder and drier then the merlot and even in a warm year like 2015, it remains the case. It’s the awkward angles you notice first, from the acidity to the dry tannins. The black and red fruits are spicy, but the flavours are short and choppy, requiring a juicy grilled hamburger to tone it down and pull it all together.Tasted: 06 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 16.99 BCLS AB 15.00 private wine shops SK 17.99 SaskLiquor MB 17.00 ON 17.00 QC 17.00 Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
