  • BC Okanagan Valley VQA Naramata Bench
  • 100% Merlot

A bright, lively, energetic and leaner “Bordeaux-style” of Merlot with a superb Naramata Bench profile, from a single vineyard located just behind the winery. On the nose, this expressive Merlot displays a great blend of jammy dark fruits, florality, cedar and licorice. On the palate, you’ll discover a perfect progression from ripe red fruits on the front palate to blackberry, cassis, gravelly minerality and tobacco leaves in the middle, followed by licorice, cloves and a hint of black pepper on the finish. The tannins are present and impactful in the right way, the oak profile is judicious and showcases the right attributes of this well-made and well-priced small batch single vineyard Merlot.
