Township 7 Reserve 7 2015

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaReserve 7 is merlot-based, at 56 percent with 25 cabernet franc and 19 cabernet sauvignon. The nose is cedary, toasted oak, blackberry, raspberry with a sweet, spicy molasses undercurrent. The attack is a full-on mix of sweet black fruit with a leathery, dry spicy finish. The fruit comes off Oliver-based Blue Terrace Vineyard and from nearby Rock Pocket Vineyard with a small amount from the Sundial Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench, all aged in American and French barrels for 24 months. It’s a big warm year in which it appears the weather has erased the terroir. That said, it will have its fans. A leg of lamb would be the rich versus rich match.Tasted: 05 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
