Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) Rich plum and berry aromas combine with toasty oak to offer a heady hint of whats to come in this enticing Merlot most notable for its big, fruity style. Tannins are well balanced and the richness of the variety comes through on the middle and back palate. Look for a hint of black cherry from the Cabernet. This finish is long and smooth.
