Natalie's Score: 87/100
A full-bodied, black-fruited wine with a smoky finish. A good grip on the palate so decant 1-2 hours. Great price.
Merlot food pairings: rack of lamb, grilled steak with mushroom sauce, veal in a red wine reduction sauce, Beef Wellington or medium aged cheddar.

|Mark Britton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This is a very nice wine a nice buy at $13.95. Nice ripe cherry on the nose, partnered with some smoke and earthiness even typically associated with a more aged wine. There is immediate cherry on the palate, then a nice lingering, smokey finish that is beautiful.

The 2011 Jackson-Triggs Reserve Series Merlot, is a medium bodied, fruity wine with appealing strawberry and raspberry aromas. It has refined tannins and a medium finish. This food friendly wine should be kept for no more than 2-3 years. My impression: NICE, 87-88 pts. Tasted Oct/12.

2011 vintage. Screw top. Light earthy, currant and red fruit and some smoke aromas from the glass. Medium-bodied and dry with red fruit, raspberry on the palate leads to peppery, medium-length finish with hints of dark chocolate. Tasted Oct/2012.
|Corinna Horton rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:|
Please do yourself favor and decant this wine for an hour or so, only then will it rest enough for you to appreciate it's black fruit flavour without a heavy assault on your palate. A little time releases a smooth, smokey finish and a touch of pepper. Well priced, it's easily affordable.

Peppery spice with some woodsy notes and juicy cherry and plum. Light to medium tannins. Fabulous for the price.
|Susan Desjardins reviewed this wine as follows:|
Enjoy the subtle aromas of red fruits, vanilla, herbs and spice of this bright cherry-red wine. Dry, medium bodied and tasty, the crisp acidity matches juicy red berry and plum, notes of vanilla and smoky spice replaying. Finishing dry yet fruity, it`s a match for pork ribs or Kootenay Alpine Cheese Company`s Alpindon.
|The 2010 Reserve Merlot is a delicious medium bodied red wine, with notes of|
oak, vanilla, cherry and plum both on the nose and the palate. The wine
underwent complete malolactic fermentation and was aged in new, one & two
year old French & American oak barriques for 4 months.
