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, vanilla and sage with a hint of Marzipan. Expect classic Merlot mid-palate roundness; it's a fresh and smooth wine that trails espresso and dark cocoa flavours.
Pair: Anything you can throw on the grill or a nice round of brie cheese.
