Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve Merlot 2016

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThick, wooded, rich and ripe with dense black and red raspberry cloaked by sweet, toasty wood. Unfortunately you can't taste the old Block 2 vines through the French and American oak for 16 months. As stands this lingers with potent fruit, vanilla, big spices, and mocha. Drink now, with roasted meats. Not a case of less is more.Tasted: 04 May 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.95 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Revelry Import Company
