Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve Merlot 2017

Golden Mile Bench, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPerfumed ripe black fruits are thick on the palate, framed by smoke, and ringing with musk spice. Tannins are chewy and dense, pulling this heavyweight to a warming finish. This comes from some of their oldest Golden Mile estate vines, though sadly the heavy handed winemaking is what we taste in the glass.Tasted: 27 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 28.95 winery, online, Bench Club, private wine shops, slect restaurant Producer: Hester Creek Estate WineryDistributors: Revelry Import Company
