(2012 Vintage) Classic Merlot aromas of dark cherries, cedar, pipe tobacco. Anise, stone and cherry blossoms. Yeah, believe it! Super smooth....a true Velvet Devil.

    Had it with strawberries, 55% dark chocolate, and Camembert & aged Gouda. A mild Merlot that supports sweeter pairings as well as cheese with a bit of bite.

    Med-to full body. Traces of dark fruit and cassis. Velvety and creamy tannins. A slight heat with the finish. Almost reminds you of hard liquor.
