Generous aromas of ripe black plum and violets are complemented by subtle nutmeg and cinnamon. The dense, plush palate reflects the gravel minerality of Arise Bench with juicy wild blackberry flavours and integrated toasted oak. Elegant and well-structured, the finish is long and pronounced.


"This is a textbook Okanagan Merlot."
