This is the perfect year to pop this Merlot and revel in its plush, spicy power. The palate is rich with mouthcoating flavors of red and black fruit rolling across graphite and dusted with spice. This plush, ripe gem shows all the best characteristics of the varietal with a sleek, flavorful finish that will have you patting yourself on the back for grabbing enough “back-up” bottles to get you through Spring.
I love the freshness here on the nose with raspberries, strawberries, citrus and orange peel. Light to medium body, crunchy acidity and a bright finish. Drink now.
