  • BC VQA Okanagan Valley Naramata Bench
  • 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

Another serious wine from the Estate Grown Series dedicated to showcasing small batch wines from the 7 acre home vineyard on the Naramata Bench. This refined Merlot has spent 21 months in French oak barrels, 33% new. The nose opens up with aromas of cassis and blackcurrant, quickly followed by notes of plum, licorice, balsamic, leather and dried herbs. The palate is modern and generous offering multiple layers of ripe dark fruits, ripe plum, dark cocoa, black licorice and tobacco. This is a long and concentrated wine, just entering its prime at the very moment. The very lengthy finish is a standard at Upper Bench and this wine definitely delivers. 84 cases produced.
