A hedonist's dream! This delicious, concentrated wine has aromas of black currants, ripe plums, dark cherry licorice, and cocoa. It has a silky full bodied entry on the palate, with tamed/controlled tannins, plenty of sweet oak, and a luxuriously long finish. With proper storage, this wine will age admirably for ten years, however, we feel it is drinkable now. Great with a juicy T-bone steak.
"Deep red. Currant, plum, leather and smoke on the nose, with a whiff of game. Broad, supple and plummy, with a restrained sweetness and a bit of Bordeaux like funk. Finishes with fairly serious tannins and a medicinal quality. Not a particularly sweet style of merlot."
