2020 Beal Vineyard Reserve Merlot
Every vintage our estate Merlot rises above expectations, and 2020 was no exception. A hot summer and dry fall created the perfect conditions for ideal ripeness. This rich, full-bodied wine has lovely aromas of dark plum, blueberry, and a subtle whiff of eucalyptus. With voluptuous tannins that will coat your entire palate, one may also detect notes of cocoa and caramel on the finish. This deep purple coloured wine is truly a Merlot that can stand the test of time.
