Calamus Estate 2012 Merlot

Hello Merlot … sadly many will not be saying that phrase too much longer in Ontario and in fact will be saying goodbye to the grape over the coming years due to its lack of winter-hardiness and the crazy-cold winters we have been having. These particular vines, planted in 2000, may or may not be there soon, but the fruits of their labour are in evidence here in the bottle: blueberry skin, baker’s cocoa along with some tannin bite and balancing acidity … but this wine needs time to reach its full potential, so buy now but give it at least a couple of years before twisting the cap. Price: $27.00 – Rating: ****+
