- Okanagan Valley
- Bottle size
- 750 mL
Grown at Monarch Vineyard down in Osoyoos this vintage of Merlot was aged in 30% new and 70% second fill French oak for 30 months. Presenting aromas of ripe cherry, plum and vanilla, followed by ripe dark field berries on the palate ending with hints of cacao and cinnamon. Enjoy this wine with a bowl of cacio e pepe, a well dressed hanger steak,
or just an extended lunch break.
Winemaker, Jason Parkes (known of The Hatch) has his hand in the wines at Indigenous World, and you can taste it in this merlot. It’s medium-weight, on the elegant side, and dry. There are light aromas of vanilla, dried and intense black cherry, and a touch of brown spice. The fruit is bursting to get out, but the wine is restrained and lengthy with a layer black fruit laced with licorice and a touch of coffee bean.
