Fort Berens Meritage Reserve 2020

British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Meritage Reserve blends 60% merlot and 40% cabernet franc from their Lillooet estate Dry Creek Vineyard. It was aged in French oak (40% new) for 15 months. Fragrant blueberries and black plum open this fuller red and continue through the spiced, smoothed palate. Tannins are supple, finishing with a bitter cocoa twist. Somewhat disjointed and forced, this would be well suited now to sauced ribs.Tasted: 09 August 2023Tasted by: Prices:
