Seven Stones Row 128 Merlot, 2011

I couldn’t get enough of it.  Until I looked at my receipt.


This is a push-me pull-you Merlot, with a deft lightness of almond and cherry countered by a jagged, cigar leaf edge which, together, are somewhat magical.  Not quite as brilliant with food as we anticipated but delectable as a sipper.  The wines of the Similkameen, if I can generalize, aside from being born and bred in paradise, are truly spectacular, and put Mission Hill to shame.

Price: With taxes this will clock in around $38 and, in some private stores, over $40.


Market Liquidity: I can’t get past the price tag.
