Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2011 Merlot - 88-89pts

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2011 Merlot (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $30
Alcohol: 13.5%
Date Tasted: August 22nd, 2014


Tasting Notes: A well balanced Merlot coming into its own at 3 years of age with a masculine nose of blackberry, vanilla, herbs, smoke, oak spice and York bar aromas. The dry palate offers integrated tannins and mouth watering acidity and a flavour profile of mixed berry fruit, Nibs candy, toasted oak, tobacco and dry herbs. 

Look for the smoke character on the nose and palate to be enhanced with further bottle ageing. Drink 2015-2018.
