With the arrival of fall, new wines have appeared on the shelves at Oliver Twist. The 2009 Merlot is coming!  This classic Merlot is a medley of black cherry, blackberries and coffee notes. The time spent in a combination of American and French oak barrels as well as the extended aging has resulted in a rich wine with fine tannins and a velvety finish.  Be sure to try the 2012 Pinot Gris as well.  This wine is a lush bouquet of delicate pears, stone fruit, melon and tropical fruits.  The firmly acidic structure makes this a well-balanced wine and a great partner for a range of dishes, most notably seafood.  The Rosado Splash has returned again as well.  The 2012 vintage of this light patio sipper is made from Syrah grapes with a splash of Viognier, resulting in a rich, off-dry rose that delights with a blast of berry flavours including blueberry, blackberry and guava with a hint of cinnamon to keep things interesting.  This wine has a bold enough profile to stand up to all manner of appetizers so make sure you take some home for your next party.
