"Smooth, fresh and juicy with cherry, spice and good balance; long and bright."
Smooth and juicy with bright red fruits and tangy acidity; balanced and fresh with edgy, fresh flavors.
This rich, ripe merlot opens with aromas of wood spice and brambleberry jam notes, followed by flavors of raspberries, cherries and a touch of vanilla. Sweet cherries continue through the silky finish, rounded out with fine tannins.
