Upper Bench Merlot Limited Release Estate Grown 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe “estate-grown” UB merlot is a more intense style with a slightly tighter style than the regular label. The nose is aromatic, with desert savoury, black fruit notes that spill on onto the palate. Its slightly cooked super-ripe, black cherry/blackcurrant fruit flavours present with some lifted, volatile notes marking what was a very hot vintage. Similar to last year the texture is chewy in texture. Drink now and in the mid-term with grilled sausages or a meaty pizza.Tasted: 26 June 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 41.50 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Upper Bench WineryDistributors: Seacove Group
