Wild Goose Vineyards 2010 Merlot Reserve - 88pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: April 22nd, 2013
Tasting Notes: Okanagan Falls' Wild Goose Vineyards, mostly known for its delicious single vineyard aromatic white wines and the uber-popular white blend "Autumn Gold", has been working with consultants to improve the red wine portion of their portfolio. This reserve Merlot is the result and shows great progress over previous vintages offering a lovely, fine tannin texture on the dark berry and oak spice palate while the nose reflects the cool vintage with bright, wild berry fruit and savoury vanilla and light cocoa aromas. The palate-cleansing acid makes this Merlot a great companion for the dinner table with tomato-based dishes making the most obvious pairing. Drink 2013-2015.
