CheckMate 2014 Opening Gambit Merlot (Okanagan Valley)

This tastes of black cherry fruit wrapped in dried leaves, tobacco and a sprinkling of Italian herbs. The tannins are chewy and substantial, but ripe and rich, in keeping with the overall flavor profile. The length and detail through the finish are impressive, as are all of the winery's 2014 Merlots.
