Mission Hill Reserve Meritage 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe first Reserve Meritage at Mission Hill mixes a larger proportion of cabernet franc, 35 percent, with 32 percent cabernet sauvignon, 31 percent merlot and two percent petit verdot grown on two estates: one in Osoyoos and one in Oliver. The attraction here is the elegance and texture of this wine. The red and black fruit is modestly spicy and juicy but it’s the long, round, silky, palate and earthy, savoury Okanagan notes that make it especially attractive for the price. Well done.Tasted: 19 December 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.99 BCLS Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
