Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Sweet vanilla, spice and ripe berry and black plum on the nose. The palate shows more ripe black berries and mocha, balanced with French oak and vibrant acidity. A well balanced and structured wine.
Ratings
92 Points Dark in colour, this brooding Merlot begins with aromas of plum, cassis and spice, leading to flavours of cassis and blueberry. There is a hint of chocolate and espresso on the finish. This is another wine that benefits from decanting, to allow the concentrated texture to reveal the aromas and flavours. This wine will blossom with five or more years of cellaring. John Schreiner
Vineyard Notes
The season started strong with a warm April, which led to good conditions for bud break. The drier than normal May set the stage for early flowering and then early ripening throughout the vineyard. The temperatures dipped in September with a wet first harvest in October. A benign weather system carried us into November with dry and mild weather.
Winemaker Notes
It's difficult to say whether Painted Rock's rise to fame is karma or just plain hard work, either way, this young winery is coming of age.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this full bodied wine a juicy ribeye roast.
