Quails' Gate The Connemara Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaConnemara is a Bordeaux blend, sourced from across the Okanagan Valley. The name is an ode to the Stewart family's immigrant grandfather Richard Stewart Sr., who said that Connemara, Ireland was the most beautiful part of his home country. The ’16 is a more refined than the 2015. It’s also a little less extracted and better balanced. This is a 40/30/30 blend of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc. I love the savoury Okanagan undercurrent that runs through its blackcurrant, black cherry, cedar and coffee palate. Lay this way through 2020 and drink through 2028.Tasted: 04 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 60.00 winery direct, private retail, restaurants Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
