Perseus Merlot 2014

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlind Creek Vineyard on the Cawston Bench in Similkameen is home to this merlot grown over a sandy topsoil that sits above gravel and sandy loam over river rock with a warm south west facing. The wine is aged in American & French oak for 16 months. Look for lifted, candied, black cherry aromas with some meaty reductive notes that persistent onto a soft, easy-sipping style palate. More sweet jammy fruit marks the finish. A simple, ready-to-drink, hamburger red.Tasted: 31 March 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: PerseusDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
