A spectacular red, bold wine from the 2019 vintage which has everything it takes to blow your socks off. Depth, concentration, length, and complexity can all be checked off the list for this 100% Estate grown Merlot from the Conviction Ridge Vineyard in Kaleden, BC. A nose of cassis with earthy undertones of forest floor and tobacco leaves announce its style right out of the gate. The front palate is already soft with round yet lively tannins. The acidity persevered throughout, while the wine evolved gracefully during the two hours I had it open. Like many of the 2019 reds, this Merlot is surprisingly approachable early on. The front palate is filled with cassis, plum, blackberry and black cherry while the mid-palate offers mocha, cedar, and a hint of vanilla. The lengthy back palate offers subtle notes of cinnamon, cloves and also finishes with cracked black pepper. A wine with a long cellaring potential at an outstanding price point! (CWC, 04/11/22). Approx. 100 cases produced.
