WineDiva's Review

Expressive, spiced, fresh.
Sandhill wines are made from seven unique BC vineyards: Sandhill Estate (Oliver), King Family (Penticton), Phantom Creek (Oliver), Osprey Ridge (Oliver), Hidden Terrace (Oliver, behind McIntyre Bluff), Carsoroso (Kelowna), and Vanessa Vineyard (Similkameen Valley).
This Merlot comes from grapes harvested from the Sandhill and Hidden Terrace Vineyards and it's an expressive one. Licorice and Italian plums, black raspberries, cola, white pepper and chocolate aromas roll onto a savoury and fresh palate. It's good structure and substance, it's not jammy as the nose suggests. Black fruit flavours are woven with cocoa, pipe tobacco and wild sage flavours. It has a smooth and spicy finish.
