Colaneri 2008 "Pensiere" Merlot
Many people are asking me, "now that you live in Niagara have you tried that new winery's wines." That's a tough question to answer since it seems a new winery is opening every month down here - but many are talking about Colaneri - the place you can see on your left as you drive along York Road toward Chateau des Charmes. The answer is "yes" and now I'm telling you about their best wine. This '08 Merlot saw 15 months of new French oak which gives it weight and structure. The nose is blueberry and blackened raspberry along with smoke and vanilla; the palate echoes many of these aromas as flavours: smoked vanilla, blueberry, raspberry and cocoa powder-sprinkled-blueberries on the long finish. Smooth and very enjoyable. Price: $29.95 - Rating: **** 1/2
