    tasting notes

    Aromas of chocolate, mocha and dried roses introduce a mix of red and black fruit flavors, resulting in an opulent Merlot. Its thick, viscous body is balanced by good acidity for an even palate, finishing long and silky. This beautiful wine should make a believer out of anyone questioning the potential of Merlot.
