This is a more rustic “Old World” style of Merlot with a classic Okanagan twist. Bright acid, solid structure, restrained, low alcohol and obvious herbaciousness had me thinking of the right bank of Bordeaux. This first single varietal Merlot offers multiple layers of aromas like dark fruits, dark chocolate and Mediterranean herbs. The palate is rich and concentrated with flavours of red currants, cassis and blackberry on the front palate while the mid-palate is currently a little tight with fresh herbs, dark cocoa, expresso coffee and pipe tobacco. On the finish, you can experience great length and complexity, but the tannins need time to integrate just a little more. In my opinion, this is a wine to lay down for another 3 years before you’ll find it hitting its stride. (CWC, 18/10/22). 288 cases produced.
