Peninsula Ridge 2010 Merlot - AJ Lepp Reserve
It's been a long time since I've been wowed by an Ontario Merlot ... but this single vineyard Merlot from the hot 2010 vintage has all the earmarks of a good Merlot now and one you can age into the future (5+ years). The nose is smoky with dark fruit, vanilla, cinnamon and a hint of strawberry ... the taste is complex with vanilla toastiness, herbal hints, cassis and cocoa notes with silky tannins and a lovely lingering finish. One of the best and most approachable 100% Merlots I've tasted from Ontario in quite some time. Price: $19.95 - Rating: ****+
