Road 13 Seventy-Four K 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt's been a few years since we tasted Seventy-Four K, named for the length of all Road 13's vineyard if laid end to end. The 2017 is a grand melange of merlot, syrah, cabernet franc, teroldego, cabernet sauvignon, malbec, petit verdot, viognier, grenache and mourvèdre. Plush and ripe purple and blue fruited, with lush plums, lavender, sweet blueberry, vanilla and nutmeg fill the round, cushioned palate. Tannins are plump, and the finish is bitter chocolate. Drink now, as intended.Tasted: 24 February 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.00 winery direct, VQA wine shops Producer: Road 13Distributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
