Tinhorn Creek Merlot 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA touch reductive upon opening with plenty of coffee, smoky toasted oak and cooked plum notes. The attack is silky smooth, almost soupy, with more chocolate, coffee, and minty cherry notes. The finish is medium long with some chewy tannins and a warm, savoury black fruit finish. This is a barbecue red with grilled ribs and burgers at the top of my list.Tasted: 17 September 2015Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 17.49 BCLS Producer: Tinhorn Creek VineyardsDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
