CheckMate 2015 Silent Bishop Merlot (Okanagan Valley)

From the western benches of the Okanagan Valley, this explodes with scents and flavors of cherry, tobacco and ground coffee. The acidity brings a hint of blood orange. The wine was put through native yeast fermentation and aged 21 months in all new French oak barrels; the tannins remain a bit coarse but should smooth out with further bottle age. Paul Gregutt
