Elegant smooth tannins, complimented by loads of fresh, red and black fruit. The beauty of this wine is the freshness in the fruit notes. This merlot defies the "jammy" categorization ... beautiful in the way it captures notes of fresh cherry, blackberry and maybe a hint of sugarplum (c'mon everyone needs some of those dancing in their heads). A polished wine, drinking beautifully now, extremely well balanced with but with structure that lends itself to enjoyment well into the 2020's.
Crafted in Del’s ‘Patience Program’: give red wines enough time in barrel and bottle, and let them tell their own story. All red wines are aged a minimum of 12 months in barrel and an additional 12 in bottle, prior to release. We use only french oak from a selection of coopers that through experimentation, we feel best compliment the fruit we grow in our Naramata farms.
Food Pairing Notes
Roast turkey, beef short rib, or a rustic ratatouille. Feeling creative? Whip up a little chimichurri sauce
to complement the concentrated fresh fruit in the 2015 Think Again.
