The 5 classic Bordeaux grape varietals of Cabernet Sauvignon (40%), Merlot (40%), Cabernet Franc (7%), Malbec (10%) and Petit Verdot (3%) comprise this reserve Meritage from Okanagan Valley producer Jackson-Triggs. A bright, young nose of raspberry and coffee is followed by pleasant flavors of spicy pepper and berries, but the mouthfeel is dry and tannic, giving the wine a rough character. Aging will help but there's still a lack of elegance here that might turn off lovers of balanced, softer wines. Imported by The Meritage Association.
