Fort Berens Meritage Reserve 2018

British Columbia, CanadaThe Reserve Meritage is a mix of Lillooet estate fruit with additions from the Okanagan Valley. Merlot dominates the blend, with cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon adding power and structure. Partial appassimento is also in the mix, adding extra spice and weight to the wine. The attack is juicy with sweet black fruit, ripe tannins, and spicy earthy notes in the finish. Depending on how youthful you like your reds, you can drink or hold this.
