Upper Bench Merlot 2012

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA bit of a blockbuster style the 2012 is bold and spicy with rich resiny black fruit aromas and flavours. The textures are soft and the acidity prominent at this point but it should settle down with some time in bottle say two to three years. The wine spent 18 months in 40 percent new French Oak which should be trimmed backed to release a bit of fruit.Tasted: 04 October 2014Tasted by: Prices:
