Last night’s wine: Pelee Island Merlot 2007

16_Merlot (Bird)After entertaining the extended family all weekend, it was nice to kick back last night and have some peace and quiet. We picked up a few bottles at the ANBL on Sat and last night we opened the Pelee Island Merlot 2007. I was really impressed. Most of the reds that I’ve enjoyed lately have been shiraz and this smooth merlot was a welcome change. The first glass was good, but it definitely opened up  as the night wore on. Cherry and black currant sweetness with a silky finish.  Pelee Island is an Ontario winery and I’m looking forward to trying their Gewurztraminer and Pinot Noir.

  1. Pelee Island does excellent whites. Their Gewurtz is very tasty, a nice sweet wine for summer.
