Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) “In the same mold and a big, voluptuous and hedonistically styled effort, the 2012 Charles Smith The Velvet Devil Merlot gives up loads of black fruits, ground herbs and licorice in a medium to full-bodied, rich and easy drinking package. Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon it should have 3-5 years of longevity.”

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2013 Vintage) True to its name, velvetly. Complex and just-so-right flavors, pipe tobacco, bing cherry, dried rose petals with a blend of subtle herbs and spice. Real wine. Real Merlot.
