2007 Road 13 Merlot

2007 Road 13 MerlotLast night a friend brought over a bottle of 2007 Road 13 Merlot.  I am quite fond of Road 13 wines, so I was quite excited to give this one a go.  I do have a couple of these exact bottles in storage myself, so it was good to see how this one was coming along.  Road 13 is working hard to define BC wines and what makes them unique, and this wine is a great example of their efforts.

This was a good, fresh tasting wine.  Another 6-12 months perhaps, and this one would have been perfect (based on my storage conditions anyway).

Update Jan 31, 2010: I had another bottle of this wine that I’ve been holding on to.  In my efforts to taste more of the wines that I’ve been saving, I opened this bottle tonight and had a couple of glasses.  I did find this wine to be much smoother this time around, and I actually enjoyed it a little bit more.

Overall, it was a great wine.  The flavours have come together nicely.  Good medium body wine.  Not too strong, and has some great flavours.  This wine, to me, is a great representation of what BC wines can be!
