Fort Berens Estate Winery 2013 Meritage (Lillooet) Fraser Canyon - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Production: 1246 cases
Date Tasted: November 28th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A blend of Bordeaux grapes sourced from the winery's home vintage in Lillooet and from the Sundial vineyard on the Black Sage Bench. The 2013 is made up of
60% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Cabernet Franc, creating a masculine Meritage with classic red berry and dark fruit aromas and flavours plus intriguing notes of smoky, cured meats, coffee beans and charred oak. Dusty tannins and wild berry acidity frame the palate nicely. The finish is long with lingering spice, minerals and a touch of orange peel. Ready to be enjoyed now with a spicy, Korean BBQ dishes. Drink 2015-2017.
