Frind Estate Big Red 2019

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBig Red is aptly that, a medium+ bodied merlot dominant Bordeaux blend that has seen time in both French and American oak (20% new). Ripe and fleshy, with black plum, raspberry, dark cherry, kirsch, and vanilla on a soft, cushy palate. Tannins are plush, hugging this to a baking spiced finish. Gobs of fruit here for only 12.5%, and ready for drinking now, ideally with braised fall veg and/or pork.Tasted: 07 September 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
