Rosewood Select Series Merlot 2012
Merlot is going to become a rarity at Rosewood pretty soon; sadly their vines did not survive the brutal winter of 2013/2014 - and a wine like this makes it even sadder to say goodbye. This wine combines the juiciness of California with the acidity and brawn of Ontario. Nose has complexity of aromas like blueberry, raspberry, cherry and touches of subtle spice. Palate is juicy with a raspberry, plum mid, a touch of chocolate (which comes off more milk than dark), plus a linger on the finish that brings cherry and blueberry back for an encore presentation. A really appealing wine worthy of a BBQ or two, or maybe just a memorial sip in remembrance of fallen vines. Score - 4+ Stars (out of 5). (Michael Pinkus,, undated)
