Road 13 Seventy-Four K 2019

British Columbia, CanadaThe latest Seventy-Four K is a big winner, led by an amazing fetching texture that fills the wine with dense fine grained tannins and a support system for big black fruit. The roundness and softness come from 61% perfectly ripe merlot, with support from 14% malbec, 9% syrah, 8% petit verdot, 5% cabernet franc and 3% mourvèdre. It is a magical blend with all you could want in a big, well-constructed Rhone-Bordeaux-Okanagan-Similkameen blend. The components were all separately harvested, fermented and aged in 20% new French oak before final blending and then aged ten more months in bottle before release.
