Merlot 2008Our 2008 Merlot was picked December 5th, almost six weeks later than usual. This additional hang time has yielded a wine with an inky deep garnet colour. The nose unveils intense cherry and black olives with a hint of coco and nutmeg. Rich and jammy this wine portrays new world fruit with old world complexity and structure. A reserved use of Canadian Oak leads to a long finish.
