Burrowing Owl Merlot, 2011


Burrowing Owl Merlot 2011

Evocative of the varietal, with typical cherry, hazelnut and woodsy notes. It seems a little heavy, a little headstrong, in an oppressive rather than ethereal fashion. On the plus side we made harissa cumin chicken, with leeks, lemon and arugula, strong and assertive flavours, and the BO had the stamina to go the distance.

 

Price: $30 from the vineyard.

 

Market Liquidity: Of note, but not particularly noteworthy.
