Bartier Bros. The Goal 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEqual parts merlot and cabernet franc off Cerqueira vineyard, on the Black Sage Bench, this macerated and fermented over 26 days prior to a 17 month stint in neutral French barrels. Big black plum, cassis, blueberries, blackberries, anise rule the compact, silken palate, housed with ragged, powdery tannins, and ringed with smoke. A bigger, potent, powerhouse red that needs a couple of years, or a grilled porterhouse or portabello mushroom now.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.99 winery online/direct Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Stile Brands
