LaStella Maestoso Solo Merlot 2011

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMaestoso is shaped by the great Super Tuscan that celebrate merlot and grapes on clay based soils and high density plantings. The colour is black and the attack is rich and warm. Long and cool was the seasonal recipe for ripe but not too alcoholic, well only 14.4. Black and blue fruit flavours with a smoky savoury, spicy mid-palate prepare you for the long warm persistent finish with a whack of tannin. A no holds barred red stretching it legs. A leg of lamb is the current match for this ginormous Osoyoos Lake District merlot. Only 21 percent oak was a wise choice.Tasted: 19 April 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 100.00 Winery Direct Producer: LaStellaDistributors: Winery Direct
