Burrowing Owl Merlot 2013, British Columbia Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2013
  • Region Okanagan Valley
  • Varietal Merlot
  • Food Pairing Medium-rare duck breast
  • Price $30 in B.C.

Full and smooth, with sweet-juicy berry fruit and notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and leather. The oak is well-integrated and the tannins glossy. Nice now, it should cellar well for up to eight years. A good match for medium-rare duck breast. Available direct from the winery, burrowingowlwine.ca.
