100% Merlot grown on our Sideshow Hill VY, Naramata Bench
Charming aromas of cherry fruit leather, intense blackberry and top notes of violet, framed by sandy tannins and bright acidity, leading to a deliciously spicy and meaty finish.
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 12-18 months in barrel and an additional 12-22 months in bottle, for a minimum 36 months aging 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.
