Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve Merlot 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMuch like last year, the Reserve Block Two Merlot is as rich and a supple it gets for merlot. The style is ripe with sweet black fruit and smoky, savoury undercurrents with just enough acidity to hold it together, but it was definitely on the hedonistic side in 2017. The attack is a cherry, cocoa/mocha affair with medium length. It should have broad appeal for its drinkability and softness. Perfect for a beef and mushroom pizza, or grilled tip steak with a chimichurri sauce.Tasted: 28 November 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 28.95 winery, online, Bench Club, private wine shops, slect restaurant Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Peacock and Martin Wine Merchants
