Redstone Merlot 2013
edstone Winery is the third Niagara venture by Tawse and is named after the red soil that the vines are grown in. The 38-acre property is farmed organically and, based on its location on the Niagara escarpment, is a perfect place for late-ripening varietals: cabernet sauvignon and merlot included. This is a typical merlot that after seeing 18 months in French oak, and nine years it still maintains its vibrancy. The scent is gorgeously rich and ripe, with a strong presence of dark fruit (think black cherry and plum) and chocolate. On the palate, blackberry and blackcurrant appear first, followed by savoury notes of coffee and cedar, as well as a tinge of smoke and spice.
Get this wine if you like a brazen style red wine that goes great with hamburger any way you want to dress it.
