Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA merlot dominant Bordeaux style blend with some chops, this opens with black cherry and plum notes. It is well structured and organized on the palate to show off more savoury black fruit and a subtle Bordeaux-like character of cedar and oak. Add a perfect level of acidity and fine-grained tannins, and you have a harmonious red that will go the distance in the bottle. The merlot and cabernet sauvignon are primarily from the estate Blue Terrace Vineyard in north Oliver; the cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc come off Raju Vineyard in south Osoyoos. It is aged in a combination of French and American oak barriques and puncheons for 24 months. Wine pairing suggestions include pork tenderloin with roasted plums and rosemary, or pasta with eggplant, tomato and Parmesan.Tasted: 23 July 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
