Mayhem Cabernet Merlot 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnother 2021 that has lost its way in a layer of wildfire smoke. The wine has all the attributes you want: the density of flavour, blueberries, and blackcurrants and a toasted oak ending with spice and plenty of warmth. The problem is the smoke on the wine, suppressing its spirit and flavours. You can drink it now, but hurry because the smoke is going to overwhelm the wine by 2024. A rainy day braised beef dish is the answer here.Tasted: 25 July 2023Tasted by: Prices:
