Burrowing Owl Merlot 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom estate vineyards in Osoyoos and Oliver, this fermented in stainless for a couple of weeks before moving to barrels for MLF and 18 months aging. Soft black plum floods this juicy and darkly fruited wine, with blackberries, and wild blueberries enveloped by plump, plush tannins. Good length and depth; drinking well now. Enveloping, like a hug, like merlot should be.Tasted: 10 March 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 30.00 VQA wine stores, winery direct AB 34.00 private wine shops ON 29.95 LCBO Producer: Burrowing Owl VineyardsDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
