Natalie's Score: 93/100

A beautifully balanced and textured BC red wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the exceptional 2013 vintage. Complex, rich, deep and long: this Canadian flagship wine has it all. A great cellar candidate as well. Taste the very best of what BC (and Canada) can produce from this top-notch winery in a superb vintage.

Food pairings: slow roasted duck, roast beef, tourtière.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full bodied red with notes of blueberry preserves, earthy red beets, violet, and cinnamon. The tannins are medium, well integrated, and there is a nice long finish. There is a beautiful harmony found in this wine, I enjoyed it very much!

Tasted November 2017
Burrowing Owl Meritage (2014) is an elegant and rich wine blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. On the palate, this full-bodied red reveals its dark fruit, black currant and spicy layers. Great structure and balance. Drink now and pair with a slow-braised brisket. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
