2015 Okanagan Valley 750 mL, 13.8% ALC/VOL
$33.00
  • Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Merlot
  • Syrah
A rich, bold blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah with aromas and flavours of plum, blueberry and cherry. Abundant tannins would suggest decanting before serving with heartier foods. Quite enjoyable now but also an excellent wine to age; 3-5 years is suggested.
