Time Meritage Red

Time Meritage Red 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaHarry McWatters founded the Meritage term in Canada, convincing the original Napa group to make the term available to other North America producers and now around the world. The 2016 Time red is merlot dominated, mixing 65 percent merlot, 20 percent cabernet sauvignon and 15 percent cabernet franc. Classic aromas with red berries, black cherry, and peppery nuances. The style is as light departure from the boisterous blends of the past, offering more fragrance and floral notes before the sage and chocolate and cherries punch through. Softer and readier to drink than most, I like it now with ribs or oven roasted beef.Tasted: 14 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 winery direct, private wine stores Producer: Time Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
