|TASTING NOTE: Sourced from Mission Hill's Osoyoos and Black Sage Bench vineyards, this Merlot (with a touch of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot) brings bright blueberry and blackberry aromas, as well as secondary raspberry, violet and mocha notes. On the full-bodied, chewy palate those blackberry and blueberry notes are joined by plum, raspberry and espresso notes, with an underlying herbal component, subtle oak and soft tannins.
