Tasting notes

Our classic ripe, juicy style is further enhanced by the intense heat of 2015. On the nose, lush aromas of fruitcake, clove, and anise. On the palate, ripe plum, blackberry, and vanilla stand out with a hint of dried fig on the finish. A Merlot made for Merlot lovers (like us).

Viticultural notes

At the heart of our Merlot lies the diversity of our 25-acre Desert Ridge vineyard just north of Osoyoos. Soil types vary from sandy to stony with some deep-running clay. Vine vigor varies, as do corresponding cropping levels. It’s as if it is 100 mini vineyards in one. The heat of 2015 ripened all of this diversity to perfection, and after nearly two years in barrels, we have integrated those 100 mini vineyards into one pure expression of place.
