Boasting a rich ruby color and fresh, sweet-smelling black cherry, red plum and blackberry aromas — complemented by whiffs of mint, tobacco and rose hips — this generous red delivers rich, fruit-centered flavors of dark cherry, plum compote and spicy blackberry. In the long, savory finish, lovely cocoa and roasted coffee bean notes emerge, along with a black tea spiciness that gives the wine a zestful kick. Smooth, yet firmly structured, with supple, well-rounded tannins, our 2008 Merlot is a testament to the superb quality of an initially challenging vintage.
Enjoy it over the next three years with herb-roasted chicken, roast duck and game hens, simply prepared beef dishes, and black olive and mushroom pizza.
