Red Rooster Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 750ml
This Rooster shows great ‘posture’ as he moves through the flock. Notes of blackberry, tobacco leaf, spice, sweet oak and currant escape from the glass. This medium to full-bodied red has soft drying tannins, and flavours of ripe blackberry, black tea, sweet spice and oak, which also linger on the finish.
The grapes for our Cabernet Merlot come from several vineyards in the south Okanagan Valley. The blend consists of 58% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Malbec. The wine was tank fermented and aged in older (80%)American oak and (20%) French oak barrels for 14 months.
