Nk'Mip Cellars (pronounced in-ka-MEEP) is the first Aboriginal-owned and -operated winery in North America. This Merlot offers up lush, full aromas of chocolate cake, cherry pie filling, vanilla, and graphite. There's a smoked meat character and plenty of dark chocolate and coffee on the palate, surrounded by chunky tannins. A good choice for smoked or marinated meats. (VINTAGES panel, Aug. 2014)
A dark red wine with intense aromas of blackberries and a hint of oak.
The wine weaves intricate flavours of plum, cassis and fresh tobacco that layer harmoniously with subtle clove and cocoa leading into a concentrated toasty finish.
Full-bodied, this Merlot has a texture that coats the palate with hints of currant fruit and barrel nuances. This is a good choice for grilled fare, roasted dishes or the cheese course.
