? Purple black with a bright purple rim colour and a fruit-forward bouquet of blue plum, cherry, and red and black berries complemented by notes of sweet cedar, vanilla and dried herbs.
? A medium-bodied Meritage with velvety tannins.
? Flavours of rich black and red fruits are dusted with sweet spice.
? Juicy black fruits, sweet vanilla and cedar linger on the finish.

? Silver Medal – Canadian Wine Awards 2009.
? 4 ½ stars out of 5 – “This is the first Meritage produced at Peller and likely the top red in the Private Reserve lineup… a crowd-pleasing wine with plump, juicy dark fruit and vanilla notes and velvety tannins.” Vines magazine, September/October 2009.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
