Supple, fragrant, structure.
This premium level Merlot is from the South Okanagan not far from Oliver.
Here is a excellent example of what Cassini is doing, and why they are garnering such attention.
Expect rich cassis and black raspberry, vanilla, mocha, baking spices and dried violets. It is supple with sweet berry flavours, dusty plums and mocha alongside pipe tobacco and vanilla. Very good balance and structure.
Excellent consistency vintage to vintage.
Pair: Grilled steaks, pork roast, lamb, braised veal, red pasta sauce, venison, Camembert or aged cheeses.
