Ravine Vineyard 2008 Merlot

This is another wine from the iYellow 44 wine event on May 26th. As frequent readers know I have issues with finding a Merlot that tastes like I think a Merlot ought to taste. So I approach them with skepticism. The wine is dark in color with a nice Merlot bouquet, some plum and a bit of sweetness coming through. On the mid pallet the wine reveals itself nicely as a smooth, well balanced, fruit forward merlot with some plums and dark fruits coming through. On the finish the wine is on the lighter side of medium with no tannins or pepperyness to it at all. There are some oak flavors but they are mild. This is for me a varietal merlot! I would give it a solid 89. It is not in the LCBO but goes for $34 at the winery. Pricey but quite good!
