Quails' Gate Merlot 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is wood-lined, dense and plush merlot, hemmed into a warm 14 degree frame. The southern Okanagan fruit was fermented in stainless, and pumped over for a month for additional extraction before spending 18 months in French oak. Chewy and dense black fruit is seasoned with tobacco, dark coffee, ripe blackberry and dark plum. Sweet tannins are plumped but sticky, and need some time in bottle. Best served now with heavily shellacked beef ribs or a simple pepper steak.Tasted: 04 November 2018Tasted by: Treve Ring & Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 25.99 BCLS AB 20.00 SK 26.00 MB 24.00 ON 27.00 Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
