What a fantastic wine. Probably my favourite of them all from Howling Bluff. It’s a well-kept secret that the Naramata Bench is one of the best places in Canada to grow Merlot grapes. You can find out for yourself with this Merlot-dominant blend that will blow your socks off. While this is rustic and off the beaten path, this red blend has power, freshness, body and complexity. On the nose, the aromas of cassis, plum and blackberry explode out of your glass before more subtle aromas of tobacco, cedar, licorice and dried herbs come together in a nice bouquet. The palate is rugged and full body, showing fantastic depth of tannins and stunning long-term potential. The front palate hits you with soft black fruits like blackberry, black currant, ripe dark cherry and licorice while the mid palate is loaded with herbs, sweet tobacco and chocolate. The never-ending finish is spicy but also displays some minerality which adds an extra layer of complexity. A FANTASTIC full body red blend at a great price-point. I love the QPR on this one!
