Township 7 Reserve 7 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe latest Reserve 7 remains merlot dominant, with fruit coming from mostly Okanagan Falls and Naramata (56%), and containing all five classic Bordeaux varieties including cabernet franc (29%), cabernet sauvignon (14%) from Osoyoos, and 1% malbec and petit verdot. The attack is full-bodied with cedar and cassis predominating on the nose, and some of that south Okanagan sagebrush underneath. The palate is weighty with near jammy blackcurrant fruit, black plums and more cedar and vanilla. Still youthful and only beginning to come together, there is no rush to open this before 2020. Lamb is the dinner choice. 658 cases produced.Tasted: 22 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
