Averill Creek Vineyard 2007 Prevost - 85pts

Averill Creek Vineyard 2007 Prevost (Cowichan Valley) Vancouver Island - BC

Availability: Direct from winery. VQA stores

Cost: $22

Date Tasted: September 5th, 2009

Tasting Notes: Named for the mountain on whose lower slopes the winery rests, this is a sly take on a Bordeaux-style blend. Made of 85% Marechal Foch, 10% Merlot and 5% Marechal-Cabernet Sauvignon hybrid, this wine shows many characteristics of a Meritage blend: dark-ruby colour, berry, licorise and tobacco flavours. This is full-bodied wine with soft tannins and acidity that would pair well with steak and other full-flavour dishes. - LC
