Tasting Notes

Bright and dark garnet colour with nuances of purple and dark cherry. Intense and aromatic bouquet of red and black berries, red and black plums, spicy vanilla oak with hint of undergrowth and wild berries. Second nose is creamier with nuances of wildberry pie, ripe blueberries and white pepper. Firm but elegant attack on ripe black fruits and mature, smooth tannins. Weighty midpalate filled with fruit and oak spice supported by a nice tension on minerality and freshness. Persistent final focuses on fresh berries, smooth texture with nuances of vanilla beans.

"Here's a very fragrant, gentle and rich yet refined merlot that captures the essence of the variety well. Lifted aromas raspberry/blackberry, floral, gentle forest floor stay focused on the palate. It is medium-full bodied, almost svelte in texture with easy appeal. The tannins are quite fine, the length is very good to excellent length."

The Producer

Megalomaniac

Founded by John Howard, Megalomaniac began as a project to help raise funds for the Kids’ Health Links Foundation. After the original vintage sold out within 90 days, John realized the impact the program might have and the idea of expanding nationally became a strategic opportunity. A second vintage was launched, and since then neither the winery nor the foundation has looked back.

Megalomaniac’s bold branding tactics are at the forefront of the winery’s success. What was originally thought to bring scorn upon the winery has managed to accomplish quite the opposite.

These bottles feature a series of faceless executives wearing the iconic bowler hat accompanied by a unique title generally associated with the Megalomaniac brand. The name itself comes from a brief story that can be found on the back of each bottle.
