Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2012 Road 13 Merlot has a beautiful dark, ruby colour. The nose is lifted with gorgeous aromas of ripe blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate and light notes of cedar. This is a vibrant, bold and powerful Merlot showing intense flavors of blackberry, blueberry and black olive. The 2012 Road 13 Merlot has a voluptuous structure, is concentrated and built with ripe tannins to give the wine structure, balance and exceptional length. An excellent example of what BC can do with this variety.
Vineyard Notes
Blind Creek Vineyard: About 60% of the grapes came from Blind Creek Vineyard in the the Similkameen Valley. This vineyard contributed rich and ripe fruit that has depth and complexity. Home Vineyard & Castle Vineyard: Gorgeous Road 13 vineyards that are located close to the winery on the Golden Mile. The wine from these sites is elegant and concentrated. Mitchell’s Vineyard: A small amount of grapes came from Summerland to add structure to the blend.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked at optimum maturity and were destemmed gently into our small fermenters. The cap was plunged 2-4 times a day during the fermentation on skin. Once the wine was near sugar dryness it was pressed in our traditional basket press and moved to Frech oak, where it aged for 15 months.
