Chateau Des Charmes 2012 St. David's Bench Vineyard Merlot (St. David's Bench) Niagara Peninsula - Ontario
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Production: 553 cases
Date Tasted: October 2nd, 2014
Tasting Notes: Stands-out from its juicier Merlot peers with an Old World appeal of leather and oak characters, grippy tannins and earthy-brine-y goodness. Dark berry and spicy plum notes add a touch of sweetness and depth on the nose and balance the savoury elements on the palate nicely. Should hold well for 3-5 more years with some further development. Drink 2015-2018.
