Bench 1775 Winery 2014 Groove (Osoyoos) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $19.90 including taxes
Production: 550 cases
Date Tasted: January 19th, 2017
Tasting Notes: A well-priced, entry-level blend of 87% Merlot, 11.5% Malbec and a splash of Cabernet Franc (1.5%) which produced a vibrant red wine with fresh, dark fruit and soft, dry herbs on the lightly perfumed nose and on the mouth-watering, dry palate. A pleasant wave of spice follows the meaty, grape-seedy tannins on the moderate finish. A BBQ/peppercorn steak wine to be enjoyed in its youth. Drink now-2018.
