Tinhorn Creek Merlot 2003

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThere's nice jump in quality with the 03 merlot. The mix of smoky oak tobacco leaf, mocha and red fruit is just right. The textures are even more textbook merlot and there's enough acidity and tannin to carry the day. Better than simple this is well made everyday spicy merlot at a very affordable price.Tasted: 23 September 2006Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 17.95 specialty listing, vqa and private wine shops Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
