Mayhem Merlot Cabernet Franc 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe mix is 75/25 merlot/cabernet franc, a smart choice for an inexpensive Okanagan red. It's all aged in French oak, another good idea, adding some class and firmness. The nose is a savoury melange of dried herbs and menthol with an earthy, leafy, black raspberry character that spills onto a fresh, red-fruited, plummy mid-palate. This wine hits all the bells and whistles for its price but can startle with its rooty, spicy finish. Perfect for mushroom risotto.Tasted: 28 August 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.74 winery direct, private retail Producer: Meyer Family VineyardsDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
