Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve Merlot 2015

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAnother rich merlot from a very warm year. The nose is a smoky, meaty affair with a spicy, savoury toasted oak undercurrent. Ripe black cherry and vanilla mix with coffee and chocolate before it finishes dry with a tug of tannins. Rich and dense, you could cellar this for another two to three years or serve now with a rare/medium rare cut of steak.Tasted: 16 December 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.95 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Revelry Import Company
