Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 89/100
Nk’Mip is pronounced in-ka-meep and the winery is the first Aboriginal owned and operated winery in North America. Loaded with aromas of ripe plum, berries and mocha from toasty oak aging. Smooth and supple with a lovely medium body. Throughout the Okanagan Valley on cliffs and on caves are hundreds of drawings of animals and people known as pictographs. Several of these are feature on the label of this Merlot.
Merlot food pairings: roasted pork loin and grilled root vegetables.

Reviews and Ratings
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
This complex wine has intense rich layers of blueberry jam, dark cherry, chocolate, vanilla, blossom, black pepper, cloves and layers of tobacco and walnuts. The refreshing acidity, firm tannic structure, and ripe fruit are well balanced. It has long length on the ripe, elegant finish.
Pair with finer cuts of beef or roast lamb.
Drink now, or cellar until 2020.
Date tasted: October 2014.
|Sara M - WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:|
A pronounced nose of plums and cloves leads into a juicy, polished palate of raspberries, cherries and more spice. Well structured and rich with a sultry, smoky finish. This wine is an excellent accompaniment to steak and prime rib. Perhaps the best Canadian Merlot I have ever tasted.
