Merlot is the most widely-planted grape variety in the Okanagan. This wine sets the bar very high for other producers of Merlot.The 2003 vintage was one of the best red wine vintages in the Okanagan in a decade. The grapes got an early start in a mild spring, went through a hot, dry summer and a long Indian summer. Getting flavour was no challenge, as this swaggering wine shows. It is a big, dark wine, with aromas of spice and berries and cedar. The flavours include ripe plums, figs and chocolate, with a full-bodied texture, due to the long, ripe tannins and the exemplary fruit concentration. The wine has a long, warm, satisfying finish. 90 points.
