This Merlot offers brambly red fruit, pomegranates, raspberry jam, red currants, dried mission figs, and layers of graphite and cocoa dust. On the palate, this Merlot has fine, firm tannins alongside dark cranberries, black cherry pie, raspberry coulis, toasted walnuts, leather, and vanilla toasted brioche. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish.
This is a well-made, attractively priced red wine, blended with small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot. It shows highlights of sage, clove and cedar that are well integrated into the dense core of blueberry and mocha.
A taut and sanguine red, with roasted cherry and macerated plum flavors that feature plenty of slate notes. Accents of ground black pepper and dried green herbs show on the tannic finish. Drink now.
