The 2013 Black Rook Merlot is an outstanding expression of ultra premium Okanagan Merlot. Deep ruby colour, the nose is so rich with bramble berry pie notes making the first impression followed by mocha, raspberry, anise, cedar, and a touch of menthol. The palate is remarkably plush whilst also being very refreshing and textured, with layers of delicious dark fruits and sweet spices, all elegantly balanced in this deeply concentrated and robust yet very harmonious wine.

95 Points, Matt Steeves

Small clusters and berries yield intense red/black fruit flavours laced with licorice. The palate is packed with firm, dense tannins and bright cherry-flavoured fruit that finishes with a peppery soft edge.
