As one of the most popular reds in the world, Merlot is a fabulous wine known for its medium to full-body and the ability to pair with many dishes.
Here at Tinhorn Creek, our Merlot is grown at our Diamondback Vineyard, on the Black Sage Bench near Osoyoos Lake. This location has favorable growing conditions and fruit contained in this wine receives both early morning and late afternoon sun. In the summer months, an additional 2 - 3 hours of sunlight per day ensures our Merlot ripens to perfection.
With notes of dried figs, cherries and plum, this wine showcases a dark purple-ruby colour and provides a great freshness, mingled with oak for a smooth finish.
