The Audacity of Thomas G Bright Cabernet Merlot Whisket Barrel Finish 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIn 1874, Thomas G. Bright dared to dream that a Niagara Falls winery could flourish and grow. That sentiment is honoured by this Niagara red made by Arterra and aged in old whisky barrels. The blend is merlot and cabernet, the flavours bold and oaky, and are a mix of sweet black cherries coated in vanilla and chocolate. Best with smoky, heavily charred grilled beef or pork. It contains 8 g/l of residual sugar, which tastes like 15, seemingly now de rigueur for these big brand reds.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.99 BCLS Producer: Thomas G.
