Sunrock Vineyard Red Meritage 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaSunRock is a hallowed sight for syrah but the south-west facing vineyard is a heat sink for all the varieties in this Meritage blend that mixes about one third each of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and merlot. The fruit is dark, deep and a bit fresher in 2016. The attack is awash in sweet fruit and tannins with notes of cassis, black cherries, plums, smoke and chocolate. This is New World red with an unabashed soft, spicy, ripe style that is ready to drink. Grilled beef is the match for now.Tasted: 21 December 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.49 private wine shops Producer: Arterra WinesDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
