Description
Burrowing Owl marked their 25th anniversary in 2018. Their Meritage is always a pure, complex expression of the five principal Bordeaux grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It will deliver impressive ripe dark fruit, oak and coffee notes in a balanced, structured package. John Szabo, MS, of winealign.com awarded both the 2013 and 2014 vintages a score of 92 points, citing the wine's concentration and density in both years. Of the 2014, he said it was '... not more than a stylistic stone's throw from many of Napa's finest'; a measure of the excellence of both this wine and the celebrated winery behind it.
Tasting Notes
Burrowing Owl founder Jim Wyse's name is one you'd be likely to see in any who's who of BC winemakers. This, his flagship wine, blends classic Bordeaux varieties to create a velvety wine with good structural underpinning and plenty of rich, ripe cassis, blackberry and cola notes. The finish is smoky, chewy and long. This will evolve nicely through 2026 and pair beautifully with braised meats and root veggies. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2019)
