Burrowing Owl Meritage 2019

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThese grapes are kept separate for 15 months in a 97/3 mix of French and American with an impressive 75% new wood. Only the best barrels make it to the Meritage blend, and 2019 looks like a real winner. A change in oak has left the wine with a more terroir and signature Southern Okanagan scented fruit. Look for black fruit streaked with desert sagebrush meeting a well structured wine that will age effortlessly into the late 2020s. The 2019 Meritage blend is 37% cabernet sauvignon, 32% cabernet franc, 23% merlot, 5% petit verdot, and 3% malbec from Eva's Vineyard in Osoyoos, and the home BOV Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench.Tasted: 26 May 2023Tasted by: Prices:
