Availability: Direct from winery, BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: October 17th, 2009
Tasting Notes: Naramata producer Township 7 Vineyards & Winery have produced a Merlot that is both a cheerful, fruit-forward charmer and a structured, smokey sex-kitten. Aromas of dark fruit, plums and baking spice followed by flavours of black cherry, smoke, cigar box and dark chocolate on the palate.
Visit the firm at two BC locations: Naramata and Langley. While visiting the winery, treat yourself to a bar of "Salt & Pepper" dark chocolate to match with this Merlot. The pairing makes for a fantastic desert. Drink 2009-2012. - LC
