Description

Pretty and seductive, with a gently spicy nose of black cherry and cassis. Soft tannins, layers of complexity, with mouth-filling flavours of plum, cherry, and wild red berry from start to finish. Pairs well with your cheese course; or, think roasted flavours like tomato, duck, beef, or homemade pizza.

Comment:

This wine is part of the outstanding portfolio proudly produced by Harry McWatters, a pioneer and veteran of the British Columbia wine industry who celebrated his 50th vintage this year. Together with his family, McWatters produces three distinct wine brands – McWatters Collection, TIME Estate Winery, and Evolve Cellars – ensuring that there is a fantastic wine for every taste.  

 

The 2016 Cabernet Merlot is well-balanced and complex. It has a soft, velvety mouth feel with a lingering finish. This wine is food-friendly and excellent value – it’s drinking well right now, but could also be aged for 3-5 years.
