Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2013 Merlot (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $30 including taxes
Date Tasted: Novemebr 25th, 2016
Tasting Notes: A nice combination of dense, vanilla-berry fruit and a strong layer of licorise and dark chocolate mint aromas grace the deep, appealing nose of this Black Sage Bench-sourced Merlot. An intense and concentrated, berry puree-infused palate follows with fine, dusty tannins, sweet spice and smoky flavours, finishing with lingering, mouth-watering acidity. Ready to go today and will hold for several years. Drink now-2019.
