Checkmate - Merlot - Opening Gambit 2014
CheckMate Artisanal Winery
Elegant aromas of black currant and black cherry, with creamy undertones and floral notes. A charming palate rich with dark fruits and supple tannins fill the mouth, leaving subtle notes of spice on the lingering finish.
Behind closed doors, a daring initiative took place over the past four years. The goal: To make new world Chardonnay and Merlot with old world elegance in North America.
