Natalie's Review

Sumac Ridge Estate Winery Black Sage Vineyard Merlot 2006, V.Q.A., Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: This supple Merlot comes from the Black Sage vineyard and shows why wines from this property are so desirable. Aged in a combo of French and American oak for 18 months, this latest Merlot is brimming with ripe black fruit, licorice, smoke, mocha and savory herbs. Dry, medium full-bodied with a round texture and enough tannins to balance the soft fruit flavors. My note: Quite frankly, one of Canada‚Äôs best Merlots. Rich, dark, brooding with lovely velvety layers of black plums, blackberries and some dark spices on the finish. A superb effort. 593053 14.50% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100.
