CheckMate 2014 Black Rook Merlot (Okanagan Valley)

Sourced from the Black Sage Bench, this is an aromatic, sexy mix of dried roses, anise, brambly berries, savory herbs and cassis. A heady wine with immense power, it was 100% fermented with wild yeasts. Smoky and smooth, the tannins have a pleasantly charred character and tongue-drying flavors of espresso grounds. Paul Gregutt
