Oldfield Reserve Merlot 2014

"Benefiting from an exceptional Southern Okanagan Valley vintage for Bordeaux varieties and fine craftsmanship, the 2014 edition of the Oldfield Reserve (formally, Oldfield Series) is their best yet. Sourced from their Black Sage Bench vineyard and blended with 15% Cabernet Franc, this already 5-year-old Merlot offers an expressive nose of maturing aromas: blue and red fruits, Nutella, black raspberry seeds and caramelized vanilla. The feminine notes continue on the fine tannin and brambly, yet, creamy palate where ripe blackberry meets spicy oak in a symbiotic symphony of flavour. The finish is long and smooth with a touch of lingering menthol. Ready to go now. Drink 2017-2021" - 92 points, Liam Carrier, Icon Wines, August 2017.

Wine Profile
90 points – Rick VanSickle - “Tinhorn adds 15% Cabernet Franc to this Merlot and ages the varietals separately in French oak barrels for 18 months, before being racked to tank, blended and finally bottled. Aromas of jammy red fruits, cassis, baking spices, cloves, cocoa and earthy notes jump from the glass. There’s a range of lovely savoury/earthy notes on entry to the palate, then red currants, strawberry pie, ripe cherries, dark chocolate and elegant toasted oak spices that carry through a supple, smooth delivery on the finish. Drinking great right now, but can improve in bottle for 5+ year 92 points - Liam Carrier, Icon Wines

My wife and I are not really Merlot drinkers, however we decided to give it a try! It was above and beyond expectations and we will enjoy another bottle very soon!
