Mt. Boucherie Winery
As I was thinking about writing this blog I seemed to recall that we have been drinking Mt. Boucherie wines for a long time. In fact it is probably one of our favourite wineries. Every time we get a chance to be near the Kelowna/ West Kelowna area we almost always stop by for a tasting. This usually results in a half dozen to a dozen bottles being purchased. After a quick search on our blog I found the following wines from Mt. Boucherie:
- 2012 Ehrenfelser (drank in 2015)
- 2010 Gamay Noir (drank in 2013) – Tara’s Favourite
- 2010 Summit Reserve Pinot Noir (drank in 2013)
- 2009 Pinot Noir (drank in 2012)
- 2006 Melange Noir (drank in 2013)
- 2005 Summit Reserve Cabernet Franc (drank in 2012)
- 2004 Cabernet Franc (drank in 2011) – Jeff’s Favourite
Mt. Boucherie Merlot
So last night we got to add another one to the list, the 2016 Mt. Boucherie Merlot. The wine is 100% Merlot grapes and as expected was a dark burgundy in colour. The grapes are a mix from the family vineyards in the Similkameen Valley, Okanagan Falls and the Golden Mile.
The wine had flavours of dark fruits, notably blackberries and plums. The finish was smooth with a hint of dark chocolate. Overall a very solid Merlot in our opinion. At $24.99 a bottle this is a nice dinner wine that would pair with any red meat dinner. Or of course anything else you want to pair it with too!
