Henry of Pelham Estate Winery VQA Niagara Peninsula Merlot 2007
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.
Rich and round with black plums and a satin texture. Medium- to full-bodied with fleshy blackberries o the finish. Perfect for movie night. Food matches: roasted red meats with simple sauces and young, firm textured cheeses.
