CheckMate 2019 Silent Bishop Merlot (Okanagan Valley)

#88 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2022
Return to List

The aromas are forward, with notes of dark raspberry, fruit rollup, cedar, tar, dark plum and a whiff of mesquite smoke. The flavors are palate coating, showing depth, intensity and impressive freshness, with tart acidity. There's plenty of tannic structure around it all. It's beautiful. Best after 2026. Sean P. Sullivan
