Fort Berens Estate Winery Meritage British Columbia 2014


"Meritage" is not a word seen on Australian labels, but refers in a North American context to Bordeaux blend style wines.  I wasn't aware of its use outside of the United States, but the evidence here is otherwise.  In the glass, this is another lovely cabernet blend from BC with aromatics of clove, struck match and herbs.  The palate is balanced, medium bodied and blackcurrant driven.  Like a Yarra Valley cabernet in style, but without the eucalyptus.  (Region: British Columbia, Canada, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now, Tasted: Jan, 2017)
