River Stone Estate Winery 2011 Corner Stone (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here
Cost: $28.50
Alcohol: 12.1%
Date Tasted: May 23rd, 2014

Tasting Notes: A 
blend of 53% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Malbec which opens with lovely, deep aromas of blueberry, blackberry and cherry fruit with light, smoky, charred-oak notes and hints of dried herbs on the nose. Certainly, a refreshing Meritage with mouth-watering acidity, mannered tannins and lots of wild berry fruit supported by oak, sage brush and spice box flavours on the palate. Ready to go now with mid-range ageing potential. Drink 2014-2018.
