Perseus Merlot 2016

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2016 is a mix of two vineyards: one in Oliver, the other in the Similkameen. This is less extracted than in the past, showing a bit more acidity and spice and a wider array of red plum, cranberry, cherry with a solid dusting of sagebrush. The palate is harder than you might expect for merlot but giving it a leaner, tighter profile. This needs food like a mushroom risotto, ribs or hamburger.Tasted: 08 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 24.99 winery direct, VQA and private wine shops Producer: PerseusDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
