From the Pacific Northwest in Canada, this is a very nice fruit forward styled Merlot. It is interesting that they were able to get this wine ripe that far north. 14.8% Abv on the label. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has cherries, cherry preserves and slight dark chocolate. On the palate, this is a big wine, slightly viscous. Jammy cherry fruit. Probably better to drink on its own. Tasty. Good finish. This will be a love it or hate it wine for many people. I enjoyed it very much.
