Cabernet Merlot, 2021

Shipped and sold by 13th Street Winery

2021 Niagara Peninsula 750 mL, 13% ALC/VOL
  • Cabernet Franc
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Merlot

Dark purple in the glass with an intense nose of dried blueberry, black cherry, vanilla, charred oak and milk chocolate. On the palate it is rich, ripe and full-bodied with smooth, young tannins and flavours of black cherries, plum compote, dark chocolate and a touch of smoky oak. The finish is long with drying tannins and lingering acidity

Enjoy with spice-rubbed rib eye or lamb chops. Drinking well on release but show further complexities with a few years in the cellar.
