Recommended drinking 2020–2023.
BLEND: 50% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Malbec
The grapes for this Meritage blend were grown in the Osoyoos region in the south of the Okanagan Valley. The hottest and driest growing area in British Columbia. This wine convoys the summer heat and ripe fruit of this southern region while maintaining the elegance that is the trade mark of our Okanagan Valley red wines.
