Lunessence Merlot 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLunessence has a handle on merlot. The style is as vibrant as you want in a red wine. Like last year, 40 percent is foot trodden, and post ferment it is aged in French oak for 12 months (12 percent new). Fragrant, fruity, black cherry and black plum flood the palate. The tannins are silky, and the finish is a long, clean affair that holds your interest. Refined and capable of some aging to add even more complexity. Have it now with T-bone steak, or cellar.Tasted: 13 May 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
