Hugging Tree Winery, based in Cawston BC, produced the Moonchild Merlot 2012. Aromas of mocha, vanilla, chocolate, black forest cake and cherry on the nose.
Tides don't receive their due for their grape growing prowess, but Hugging Tree is paying homage to them with the Moonchild Merlot. A touch a Syrah adds spiciness to a dark fruit-focused palate. Aromas of black forest cake, mocha, vanilla, chocolate and cherry characterize this vintage’s complex nose.
