Upper Bench Merlot 2012

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFresh bright plum, black cherry, briar, licorice nose with bits of chocolate, vanilla and peppery/meaty dried herb aromas. The attack is juicy and full with some light, grainy tannins the flavours a mix of peppery, coffee, roast pepper, black olive, black cherry and tobacco flavours. The finish has some tannins and oak to shed but will be fine with grilled meats now and much better in bottle a year or three from now.Tasted: 03 April 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery direct, VQA stores, private liquor stores Producer: Upper Bench WineryDistributors: Wolfe Jack Supply Company
