Our award-winning 2012 Merlot is bigger than your average Merlot, offering wonderful depth on the nose, due in part to the wonderful growing season.
After a warm dry growing our Merlot has a much to offer in the glass. Blueberries lead the aromatics with black cherry and plum. Accents of vanilla, cedar and tobacco in the background. Some of the aromas are echoed on the palate with blueberry and plum up front with lingering cedar and vanilla. Plush mouth-feel with firm tannins leading to a drawn out intense finish. Will benefit from decanting and will age gracefully for years to come.
“Deep ruby colour; a nose of cedar, blueberry and blackcurrant with a spicy, toasty oak note; medium to full-bodied, dry, well-extracted blueberry and black cherry flavours; full in the mouth, with well integrated oak and a floral grace note.”
