2012 CedarCreek Desert Ridge Platinum Merlot


Osoyoos, British Columbia

11 acres of merlot are planted at the Desert Ridge Vineyard in Osoyoos but rows 50-90 are always extra special. A combination of stony soil, exceptional drainage, and careful tending produces extraordinary Merlot from those rows. A nose of licorice and cloves with a palate of Intense, concentrated black cherry.
