Tasted April 2010: A very fine effort. The colour is deep. The wine has a wonderful perfume of intense black berry fruit and a soft oakiness, with some elegant spiciness. The taste is marvelous, deep, smooth, rounded and concentrated, with well-integrated soft tannins. A supremely balanced wine, a very fine Merlot, and great value at $24. Will keep until 2018.

Ripe, with cherry and blackberry flavors and a dose of smoky oak. Finishes dry. Shows some elegance in the smooth texture and balance.

A smooth, seamless effort, with gentle tannins wrapped around a pretty core of spicy black cherry and blackberry, with a touch of smoke and mocha. Moderately tannic. Drink now through 2007.

Serves up ripe cherry, berry, plum and spice flavors and picks up complex cedar and tobacco notes on the finish. Ready to drink.

Serves up lots of sage, cedar and spice notes, with supple plum and black cherry flavors folding in nicely on the finish, giving a sense of finesse and polish.

This red wine is a little thin and short on the finish, but it keeps faith with Merlot's promise of softness and a gentle full-bodiedness. The wine is ripe in cherries, with a touch of smoky oak, and is nicely dry and balanced.

A pure Merlot, with herb, tar, coffee and currant flavors. Supple and round, firm on the finish, with enough tannin to cellar short-term. Good value. Best from 2001 through 2007.


External Review

Rich and complex, with a pleasantly earthy core of currant, blackberry, plum, cedar and spice. Turns elegant and polished, with firm yet supple tannins. Drink now through 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Aromas of black fruits dominate with notable hints of plum on the nose.Rich, ripe and forward with big fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberryare backed by a slight hint of mint and subtle notes of roasted meat.Lush and fleshy tannins gently surround the fruit to a satisfying finish.

Tasting Notes:

Our Reserve Merlot is known for its velvety texture and described to many as “liquid velvet” in a glass. Simply magnificent upon release, the nose of this Merlot displays wonderful aromas of black plums, ripe blueberries, cassis, fresh violets and mocha. On the palate, a soft, creamy and pleasant entry leads to a silky texture with gorgeous, round tannins. And always with a finish that will last for minutes!
