    Smooth and juicy with bright red fruits and tangy acidity; balanced and fresh with edgy, fresh flavors.


    tasting notes

    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.
