In a brilliant juxtaposition of dense fruit and light acidity, aromas of Black Cherry, Baked Plums, and Blackberry welcome the senses and are followed with warm notes of Dark Fudge, Chocolate, and Vanilla Beans. On the palate, Raspberry Cordial, Cherry Pie Filling, and Cedar box mingle with hints of Cinnamon. A stunning example of all the best Merlot has to offer, the lush mouth-feel and complexity of flavors culminate in a rich finish.
Wine Advocate 93pts -Napa, CA- "Dark berries, freshly cut flowers and sweet spices are some of the notes that flow from the 2010 Merlot. Layers of bright, well-articulated fruit caress the palate on the finish of this extroverted, juicy Merlot
The delicate tannins with a soft aftertaste of wienerschnitzel makes this wine perfect for a hardy German meal
