  • BC VQA Okanagan Valley Naramata Bench
  • 100% Merlot

A great showing here showcasing some of the best Merlot grapes of the Naramata Bench. The nose is expressive offering ripe plum, dark cherry, a hint of pencil lead and licorice. The front-palate explodes with ripe blackberry, red current, black cherry and some chewy tobacco leaves. This is an explosive and powerful wine featuring round tannins and moderate oak profile leaving space for fruit expression. At 15% alcohol, this is definitely a "big boy" wine but not disproportionately over the top. A star Merlot for the $30 category. I'm impressed… 610 cases produced.
