Four Shadows Merlot 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis wine has improved each of the last three years, and this is the best effort yet for this classic release. The nose is a minty, spicy affair of black fruits that tumbles onto the palate mixing black currants, cassis, and a delicious umami-like earthy character. It is reminiscent of Bolgheri and, at times, other BC reds streaked with desert scrub. You can drink or hold this, but you have a solid bottle of wine. Pair with grilled lamb chops, beef ribs, or simple pizza funghi.Tasted: 28 February 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
