This Meritage is a blend of grapes from our estate vineyard in Lillooet and from the Sundial Vineyard in Oliver in the South Okanagan. It is a blend of 60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet
Franc. It features rich aromas of black currant and grilled red peppers with a silky texture, firm tannins, and a lengthy finish. It is ideal for hearty roasts and robust late night conversations.

This Meritage contains a beautiful blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. Each varietal was fermented separately in small batches and then aged in French and American oak barrels for nine months. After the cellaring period, the wine was assessed. We then selected the best batches for the blend. Our 2013 Meritage was bottled and aged for an additional eleven months prior to release.
Food Pairing Notes
Our Meritage pairs well with the best cuts of beef: tenderloin, prime rib or rib-Eye with potato wedges. Or drink with barbequed venison and polenta.
Wine is approaching its peak, but can be cellared until 2020-2022
