WineDiva's Review

Fresh, smooth, genuine.
Grown on the Black Sage gravel bar in Bartier's estate Cerqueira vineyard, this fresh Merlot doesn't resemble so many of the over-oaked versions the Okanagan used to be known for. Aromas are of spiced plums and blackberries, dark chocolate, charred cedar, vanilla and sage with a hint of marzipan. Expect classic Merlot mid-palate roundness; it's a fresh and smooth wine that trails espresso, brown spices, coffee and dark cocoa flavours.
An honest red with a sense of place.
Pair: Anything you can throw on the grill or a nice round of brie cheese.
