Tinhorn Creek Merlot 2006

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA rounder softer version of the '05 with earthy, tobacco leaf and vanilla notes on the nose. On the palate more earthy tea, black olive flavours with a lean if smooth aftertaste. Solid if unexciting. Needs more fruit. Best with a grilled meat course.Tasted: 31 December 2008Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 19.00 specialty listing, vqa and private wine shops Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
