2020 Merlot

2020 Merlot

Luscious blackberries, dark plums, mocha, and vanilla spice are on the nose and palate. The tannins are soft and approachable. The finish is rich and persistent with pleasant flavours lingering long after the last sip.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were picked at peak ripeness and gently destemmed into stainless steel tanks. The wine was pumped over twice daily and then pressed off into select French and American oak barrels where the wine finished going through secondary fermentation. The wine was then aged in the barrels for 16 months.

Our Black Sage Vineyard, located on the East side of the Okanagan Valley received plenty of sun throughout the Spring and early Summer. Cooler temperatures prevailed during August and September, but Mother Nature was nice enough to bless us with a warm October. We’re expecting big things from our Viognier and Chardonnay as the fruit was top notch. The late ripening varietals which dominate our site are showing rich red fruit and sophisticated structure.
Pair our 2020 Merlot with pot roast, meatloaf, venison steaks, other braised meats and firm cheeses.
