Fort Berens Meritage 2016

British Columbia, CanadaQuite reduced out of the bottle, so give it some time in the glass or a decanter to wake up. The colour is light, the nose meaty with a vegetative undercurrent. The blend is 75 percent merlot with 15 cabernet sauvignon and 10 percent cabernet franc. The nose takes away from the impressive soft textures and blackberry, cedary fruit that sits beneath. This needs some time in the bottle to get sorted, otherwise serve now with a winter hardy stew.Tasted: 16 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.99 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Fort Berens Estate WineryDistributors: The Drinks List
