2015 Opening Gambit Merlot

An elegant nose of blackcurrant and black fruits with creamy undertones and floral notes. The palate is charming with a rich entry giving way to dark, ripe fruits and supple tannins.

Rich and concentrated, the wine begins with aromas of black currant, black cherry and raspberry. The dark fruits carry the palate and fill the mouth. There is a note of spice on the lingering finish.

96 Points, John Schreiner

Make no mistake, this wine is hedonistic, but it’s been that way from the start. This wine continues to take me to Bolgheri with its savoury mocha, and that’s an excellent place to be. This is a showy south Okanagan red that delivers.
