  • BC Okanagan Valley VQA Naramata Bench
  • 100% Merlot

A bold, rich and concentrated single-vineyard Naramata Bench Merlot, built for the long run. The house style of 12 months of aging in 50% new oak is also used for this full body wine, highlighting the potential of Merlot in this lakeside sub-appellation of the Okanagan Valley. The nose is absolutely beautiful. Mostly dark fruits, with a hint of blue fruits, laced with cigar box, leather, licorice and toasty oak spices. The palate is grippy, muscular and generous showing dark plum, sweet cassis, dark cherry, chocolate fudge and tobacco. The tannins are concentrated, drying your mouth at the very end. Meanwhile the oak presence still surfs the wine but doesn’t interfere with the sensory pleasure, while at the end the cracked pepper sensation lasts forever. This 2020 Merlot can be even more of a GEM in 3-5 years.
