Lively aromas of Italian plum, ripe berries and hints of cardamom introduce this full-bodied
merlot. In the mouth, flavors of plum, black cherry, and vanilla fuse together with cedary spice.
Supple and rich on the palate, the tannins are seamless and the oak profile is well integrated
with the wine's fruit.
The 2004 Merlot would make a tasty companion for a wild mushroom
risotto or a pan sautéed halibut topped with a puttanesca sauce.
