2016 Turtle Rock Farms Merlot $50 - ($42.50 Wine Club Price)

14.6% Alc.

This is a single vineyard Merlot from Turtle Rock Farms.  Nestled on a granite and gravel base under the KVR trail above the Naramata bench, this property brings elegance to a powerful expression of Merlot.  There is nothing shy about the grippy tannins carrying spicy bold and ripe cherry with cake spice.  The finish is lifted by a brightness that lasts on the lingering tannins.  Cellar for 5-7 years.

'From a single vineyard on a granite / gravel base above the Naramata Bench, this merlot is plump and rich with ripe black plum, inky dark cherry, dark chocolate, on a deep, rich palate. Acidity is granite-brightened, and tannins are soft and leathery, leading to a warming, espresso and spiced cake finish. Drink this heavyweight merlot now, ideally with grilled ribs. 89 points' - Treve Ring, Gismondi on Wine tasted June 19 2020
