Township 7 Merlot 2017

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Oliver's Blue Terrace vineyard, and Naramata Bench's Front Yard vineyard, this merlot was macerated over 3 weeks with thrice daily plunging to ensure ample fruit extraction. This was then aged in American and French barrels for 18 months, further amping up the intensity. Dark cassis, dark cocoa, roasted espresso floods the full-potent palate, housed by gritty tannins to a bitter finish. Pour this punchy red with an equally punchy red meat dish to best results.Tasted: 07 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 25.97 BCLS AB 24.95 private wine stores Producer: Township 7 Vineyards and WineriesDistributors: Renaissance Wine Merchants Ltd.
