A Wine to Guard

What wine are you Guarding? We’ve enjoyed this Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve 2010 Merlot at the beautiful Terrafina Restaurant at Hester Creek Estate Winery in the Okanagan Valley.


Hester Creek Tasting Notes: This Hester Creek Block 2 Reserve 2010 Merlot is very enjoyable right now and has the ability to easily age for 5-7 years. Showcasing strong notes of mocha, plum and eucalyptus, this wine has a lovely balanced tannin structure with a multi layerd mid palate of black current and cherries. Try pairing this wine with a nice cut of prime rib, something with some marbling. Alternatively it will pair well with a wide range of cheeses medium or full bodied.
