Hillside Merlot Dickinson Vineyard 2015

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaDickinson Vineyard is one part of a trio of Hillside single-vineyard merlot. The nine-year-old site sits above the road en route to the town of Naramata. It is always the warmer and more luxurious style of the three merlots, and that is doubly true in the super hot 2015 vintage. Look for round, intense black cherries, fragrant tobacco, dark chocolate, brown spice, and rich, dense sweet tannins. Still youthful, but would be well served alongside a grilled steak. It will be drinking first amongst the Merlot trio this year and beyond.Tasted: 05 March 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct Producer: Hillside WineryDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
