This elegant and refined Merlot is filled with aromas of cassis and coffee which are mirrored in the palate, alongside flavours of ripe cherry, damson plum with hints of dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, fashioning a lingering finish.
A late spring and moderately warm summer preserved the bright cherry and plum aromas and allowed for a very long hang time for the 2019 Merlot grapes. This blend was created from 3 principal blocks of Merlot: our own Hidden Valley Vineyard, a bowl-shaped valley behind the winery on Naramata Road, the Dickinson
Vineyard, about halfway to Naramata and below the road, and the Occhi Dolci Vineyard, perched above the lake below Munson Mountain.
