Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Merlot 2009
Savoury and delicious with full-bodied goodness. There's almost a meaty note mid-palate: intriguing and satisfying, especially when you're enjoying pork tenderloin or prime rib. Aromas of dark plum and blackberry with some smoke on a long finish.

Burrowing Owl is one of my favorite vineyards in Canada with a great staff and great wine. This Merlot is full of juicy dark plum flavours with cedar and smoke and soft tannins to round it off. I have a shipment of this wine on order and can't wait to receive it and enjoy it even more.
|Shows why the winery built its reputation as one of the Okanagan’s leading Merlot producers. This wine is juicy on the palate, with concentrated flavours of plum and black currant and with spicy red fruit in the aroma and on the finish.
