This rich, full-bodied wine is a beautifully balanced blend of 56% Merlot, 27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Cabernet Franc. It is lush with flavours of dark cherries, blackberries and chocolate. The seemingly endless finish has peppery tones that make it the perfect wine to complement a grilled ribeye or tuna steak.
This deep red wine has aromas of Lillooet's local sagebrush blended with freshly picked dark cherries and berries. It's a vibrant full-bodied wine with notes of Asian Five Spice, bright tannins and a powerful, long finish.
Bronze at the Decanter World Wine Awards
Our Merlot-predominant Meritage Reserve is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Fruit was sourced from our estate vineyard, two vineyards in the Okanagan and one vineyard in the Similkameen. All of the fractions of this blend were aged in both French and American oak. After barrel aging, those barrels that were showing the highest quality were selected by our winemaker for this Reserve blend.
Food Pairing Notes
Savour this with beef wellington, game meat with Asian spices or decadent, house-made pizza.
