Blasted Church Merlot 2021

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Blasted Church Merlot is all home estate fruit grown on the Skaha Bench. The vines are 30 years old, the yields are low, and the result is a supremely rich red. Look for plenty of black plums, baking chocolate, black cherries, and fragrant vanilla. This is a stylish red, and it's only just settling in. Drink or hold, this is a good one. The oak is all French, and only 30 percent new, making for a winning formula.Tasted: 27 September 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
