Mission Hill Reserve Merlot 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA hedonistic style packed full of rich black peppery plums, dense cassis and espresso notes sourced from Mission Hill's Osoyoos and Black Sage Bench vineyards that spend 13 months in French and American barrels. Tannins are plush and grainy, enough to support the richness of sun-ripened fruit to the warm finish. A wave of savoury dried desert herbs helps tie this to place. It’s ready to drink but will be best enjoyed with lamb or beef shank.Tasted: 02 February 2017Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Treve RingPrices:
