|TASTING NOTE: As always, the Jackson-Triggs Grand Reserve Meritage delivers a complex, impressive aroma profile with lots of smoky black fruit, with ripe cassis, licorice, cedar and vanilla tones piled on for good measure. This is savoury and long, with sweet spice alongside the hearty replays and a bold, toasty finish. Delicious. Enjoy with rosemary braised lamb shanks. (Vintages panel, Oct. 2017)
