WS 92 WE 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - Ripe, round and generous, with cherry and walnut flavors wrapped in a veil of fine tannins. Shows depth and deft balance, letting its flavors linger easily. Best from 2014 through 2018. 900 cases made.
According to Wine Enthusiast - A chocolaty wine with very pretty red fruit, this smooth and lightly spicy vintage is particularly well made given the cool year. In the blend are small amounts of Cabernet and Syrah, but Merlot is the star here, with rich blackcherry flavors wrapped in mocha.
Winemakers Notes - This is a powerful, complex Merlot with layers of rich fruit. More than half of the fruit came from our Canoe Ridge Estate vineyard, showing the evolution of the vineyard. Try this with steak, ribs or a leg of lamb. Rated 90+
