CheckMate 2016 Opening Gambit Merlot (Okanagan Valley)

Rich black cherry fruit is backed with a strong streak of espresso, reflecting 21 months in all new French oak. That said, and despite the elevated alcohol, the tannins are quite astringent with green tea flavors, suggesting that there may have been some unevenly ripened fruit in the mix. Paul Gregutt
