Crowsnest Family Reserve Merlot 2016

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Crowsnest style has always been cooler and greener, and you get a vegetative cassis undercurrent here, but the textures are much improved, almost silky and persistent from the front to the back. Red fruits and spice mark the palate with a dusting of sagebrush and crushed dried herbs. Try this with a spaghetti Bolognese or a cheesy pepperoni pizza.
