Mission Hill Reserve Merlot 2014

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWe can do merlot in BC when we put our mind to it and it can be hedonistic too. Ripe, full, dusty cherry fruit flecked with pepper and espresso notes mark a full-flavoured palate. The reserve level merlot contains bits of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot all grown in the Okanagan south in Oliver and Osoyoos. It spends 13 months in French and American oak adding more texture. Solid and will improve in the bottle over the next two years. Best with lamb or beef dishes.Tasted: 11 August 2017Tasted by: Prices:
