Noble Ridge Meritage 2018

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 34 acre Okanagan Falls Vineyard at Noble Ridge is home for this fruit. The mix is 83 percent merlot (clone 118 planted in 1986, and an unknown clone planted in 1999), and 17 percent cabernet sauvignon (also an unknown clone from one of the oldest blocks of cab in the Okanagan, planted in 1986). After a standard, three-day fermentation, it spent 12 months in 20 percent new barrels, 75% French, and 25% American. The result is a good red blend: spicy, savoury, and sporting some good green and desert scrub mixed with black raspberry and cedar. Best now with grilled meats and a decant before serving. Good value.Tasted: 27 November 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 winery online/direct Producer: Noble Ridge Vineyard and WineryDistributors: Noble Ridge Winery
