Quails’ Gate Merlot 2014, British Columbia Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2014
  • Region Okanagan Valley
  • Varietal Merlot
  • Price $21.99 in B.C.

Full-bodied and dry, with a gentle tug from chalky tannins. The 2014 merlot is handsomely structured, not your wimpy-smooth merlot like so many mass-produced versions. Imagine rich berries crushed on a smoky cedar plank, with a whiff of vanilla thrown in. Decant it now or cellar it for up to eight more years. Available in BC Liquor Stores or direct from the winery, quailsgate.com.
