Bold and juicy, this is the most modern/New World style of wine in my current selection from Desert Hills. Round and classic, unfined and unfiltered, with a healthy 20 months in French oak barrels (only 10% new) this wine delivers everything you can expect from a South Okanagan Merlot. The aromas of cassis, blackberry, dark cherry and pipe tobacco are jumping out of the glass announcing a powerful wine. The palate is dense and tightly knit offering real pure Merlot traits like cassis, ripe raspberry, macerated cherry with a savoury mid-palate. The finish is medium long but highlights a spicier than usual expression….. which brings character and style to this wine. The texture definitely helps enhance the overall experience.
