Burrowing Owl’s 2007 Meritage has a dark, plum core with a bright, purple rim. On the nose, this wine displays outstanding complexity with a vibrant floral scent, as well as ripe red fruit, luscious cassis, blackberries, plums, and clean, forest aromas. There is also a hint of pepper, mint, clove and tobacco. On the palate, this wine has rich, smooth tannins, and lovely, ripe red fruit, dark chocolate and forest flavours. There is an elegant and silky finish with a hint of mint and clove essence. A very unique Okanagan interpretation of a classic Bordeaux style wine. Drink 2010 through 2018, with longer aging possible with proper cellaring.
