Frind Estate The Premier 2021

British Columbia, CanadaThe Premier is Frind's pinnacle label, a rambling 60/15/12/6/4/2/1 mix of merlot, syrah, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, malbec, cabernet franc, and teroldego, proving that in many cases small lot fermentations blended are better than the parts. Deep, dark, rich, and soft with a modicum of residual sugar that will please many a palate, this wine is ripe with black cherry, red plum, and a hint of vanilla. The latest version appears to be profiting from adding petit verdot, lending a bit of power and weight to a very approachable red. Indeed, one you can know now. It is aged for 12 months in French and American oak. A rib roast with balsamic glazed roasted vegetables is the winery's choice. I would add a pork roast to the menu as well.Tasted: 19 December 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
