Natalie's Score: 92/100

A lush and full-bodied, plushy Merlot from the Burrowing Owl Winery in the South Okanagan, British Columbia. It doesn't get smoother than this! Wine grapes were hand-harvested and the wine spent 14 months in French oak, American and European oak barrels. Spicy and floral on the nose with fresh acidity on the palate matched with ripe dark plum, dark raspberry, baking spice and smoky flavours. Pour with grilled lamb or pork chops. Drink or hold

Merlot food pairings: grilled pork chops, meat stuffed Portobello mushrooms, grilled veal chops.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
