Lunessence Merlot 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaExpect an soft relatively sweet old-style merlot here with a lot of oak. The nose is a mix of cocoa, coffee and vanilla with bits of cherry cola. The attack, soft and round with more chocolate cherry flavours along with some acidity poking through the back end. The fruit appears to be struggling to get to the foreground through the oak. Best now with grilled meats. Too much winemaking not enough Golden Mile Bench.Tasted: 06 April 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
