Natalie's Score: 89/100

Love this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon-driven, Merlot red wine blend from Lakeshore Farm Vineyard. Well-balance with bright acidity to ripe dark berry, cherry, cracked pepper and toasty oak spice flavours finishing long smoky and meaty on the palate. Nice now! Pair with bison burgers from the grill.

Cabernet Merlot food pairings: grilled lamb chops, roast chicken, slow-braised pork shoulder roast.

Reviews and Ratings

13th Street 2018 Cabernet Merlot is fantastic value under $20. Rich and smooth 56% Cabernet Sauvignon and 44% Merlot ripe cassis, dark berry, cake spice and smoky, meaty flavours on the palate. Great balance of fruit to acidity. Enjoy this food-friendly full-bodied red blend with gourmet burgers from the grill topped with smoky cheddar cheese. - Community Wine Reviews
