Deep ruby red in colour, this Merlot features notes of dark plums, blackberries, cinnamon, and licorice, with hints of dark chocolate. A medium to full-bodied wine with a juicy yet smooth tannin structure on the palate.

Dry Creek Vineyard, Lillooet
This wine was handcrafted from our finest 100% estate grown Merlot grapes from our Dry Creek Vineyard. This premium wine features a barrel selection from 10 barrels of Merlot. A combination of different coopers and toasting levels were used to give this wine a unique complexity of flavours. It was aged for 15 months in French oak, resulting in very smooth, juicy tannins. A wine with a beautiful bouquet and concentrated in flavour, yet elegant on the finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this perfect fall and winter wine with lamb, beef short ribs, roasted pork, or butternut squash soup.
