Bartier Bros. The Orchard Row 2018

Summerland, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Orchard Row is an unlikely mix of cabernet franc, merlot, gamay, and pinot noir, with a 15 month stint in neutral French barrels. The unlikely sounding mix doesn't come together any easier on the palate, with green, herbal edged cassis, soft cherry, milk chocolate, plum, and forest floor all jockeying for position. Tannins are powdery and the frame blocky to a warming finish. Try with a slight chill and partnering with grilled veg or beef burgers.Tasted: 16 November 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.99 winery online/direct Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Stile Brands
