2017 DSL Meritage Canadian Oak
Meritage is a term used in North America to identify a blend typically found in the Bordeaux region of France. By regulation, the red blend can only consist of five specific varietals, with no one varietal accounting for more than 90%. The 2017 Distinctive Small Lot Meritage Canadian Oak is 62% Merlot and 38% Cabernet Sauvignon. Less than 175 cases were made as winemaker Marc Bradshaw selected individual barrels of the two wines before making the blend. The result is a medium to fuller-bodied red wine with lovely fresh, red berry notes and a touch of mocha.
