2014 Gretzky Estates Merlot

Dark in color with a mild dark berry nose. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some nice dark berries coming through along with some earthy notes and some oak. On the medium length finish the wine displays some smooth tannins and dryness. This has a bit of everything in it, not a bad wine. We paired it with steaks and it held it’s own, and went well with chocolate cookies for dessert! I would give it an -88 which for the price is not bad.
