Tinhorn Creek Merlot 2000

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaExpect a pale colour that is definitely lighter than in previous years. Cherry jam and spicy vanilla with a touch of minty coconut (or warm day on the beach) on the nose. Round and supple on entry with good intensity of flavours but the finish is dry and slightly astringent. More Italian the Okanagan. Barbecued flank steak would be a good idea here.Tasted: 19 April 2003Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 15.95 Specialty Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
