Hillside Merlot 2020

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA lovely elegant, stylish merlot that melts in your mouth. Classic soft tannins, with cassis, black cherry, and a touch of bitter dark chocolate for balance. This blend features four principal blocks of Merlot from the estate Hidden Valley Vineyard, a bowl-shaped valley behind the winery on Naramata Road: Gjoa's Vineyard, just across the street; Dickinson Vineyard, about halfway to Naramata and below the road; and Occhi Dolci Vineyard to the South, perched above the lake below Munson Mountain. Subtle, sophisticated, and the perfect mid-week red.Tasted: 15 September 2023Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
