(From 2009 Vintage) Our Merlot is very deep in color, almost black. This wine is complex, rich, long and fat. It has the flavor of crushed black fruits such as ripe blackberries and cherries, and also has the flavor of jam and cooked fruits. There are some smoky perfumes and some spices such as cinnamon and thyme as well. This wine is round, fat and long in the mouth with mature tannins in the finish. It is interesting, well balanced and easy to drink. It will keep well for 2 to 3 years.
