Hillside Merlot - Malbec

Hillside Merlot - Malbec 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaIt’s been a while since we saw this easy sipping red blend featuring two Bordeaux varieties, namely merlot and malbec. The nose is fragrant, offering up spicy coffee mixed with orange blossom and black cherry. The palate is similar, with soft, fine grained tannins and a fresh juicy finish. A lively red you can pair with roast chicken or a meaty pizza, this light, mini-Bordeaux red is all Naramata.Tasted: 30 September 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 26.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers, restaurants Producer: Hillside WineryDistributors: Lone Tree Cellars
