Hillside Estates 2004 Reserve Series Merlot (Naramata Bench) Okanagan - BC
Cost: $30.00 (Direst from the winery)
Tasting Notes: A developing merlot from a great BC producer. The appearance was opaque and garnet. The nose had blackberry, plum and chocolate notes. The palate had more developed tastes of plum, pepper, and olive. The finish had nice length and a touch of spice. Overall this wine is smooth, balance, and complex. Very nice and pairs well with pasta or dark chocolate.
This wine was saved for about three years from the time of purchase and seems to be performing well. Another year or two may develop this one well. - HC
