Okanagan Valley, British Columbia
100% Merlot. Harvested and sorted by hand and fermented using indigenous yeasts. Aged in French oak barrels for 21 months and an additional 9 months in bottle at the winery prior to release.
Cherry and cocoa aromas come through on the nose. Rich, long-lasting tannins overlay full-bodied Italian plum and blackberry flavours. A touch of spice appears on the finish. This Merlot is complex, round and exhibits well-balanced fruit, tannins and acidity. Enjoy now and take note that it will continue to improve with cellar aging.
