Upper Bench Merlot 2018

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAlways intense and aromatic, the Upper Bench Merlot shouts Okanagan on the nose and palate. Look for a scrubby sagebrush, black cherry, minty nose that spills onto the palate with strong spice notes throughout the finish. It is young and rambunctious but should settle in with three to five years of bottle age, easily attained by the freshness available. A work in progress that is progressing just fine.Tasted: 04 June 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
