Drink of the Week – LaStella Winery Maestoso ‘Solo’ Merlot 2009

This week’s Drink of the Week is LaStella Winery’s latest release, the Maestoso ‘Solo’ Merlot 2009. We were lucky enough to try this amazing new wine at the LaStella open house last month, and just couldn’t resist sharing it with our fellow wine-loving fans.

The 2009 Maestoso is the flagship wine and ‘jewel in the crown’ of this successful Osoyoos winery, situated on the shores of the stunning Osoyoos Lake. A solo Merlot, the heat of the 2009 growing season has contributed to a wine of exuberant, lush fruit and subtle yet exotic notes. Always opaque in colour, Maestoso has a pronounced nose of blue fruit, smoked meat and café mocha.

Make sure you keep your eye out for this great new wine in the coming weeks! Just in time for the holidays, the Maestoso makes a well-chosen token for a holiday party host or hostess, or a thoughtful present for the epicureans in your life. Or simply enjoy at home with your closest family and friends!
