This is merlot as most people expect it to be – smooth. Creamy in the middle, it shows plum and vanilla in a vaguely sweet way, lifted to dry terrain with cedar, spice, bitter cocoa and bright acidity. Nice on its own or with grilled red meats or seared duck breast. Available in Ontario at the above price, $17.49 in British Columbia, various prices in Alberta, $17.49 in Manitoba, $21.49 in New Brunswick, $21.19 in Prince Edward Island.
