This 2009 Merlot displays ripe black cherry and plum compote aromas complemented by enticing tea-leaf, toasted vanilla and woodsy scents. Plush, rich and juicy on the palate, its densely concentrated black cherry, dark plum and pomegranate flavors are supported by fine-grained tannins and a long, sumptuous finish graced by savory spice and mocha tones. An irresistibly lush Merlot of great depth, length and suppleness, it drinks deliciously now, yet will develop further complexity with another 2-3 years of bottle age.
Smooth & Supple
Cheese > Hard, Beef > Stew, Pork > Tenderloin
Smooth & Supple but not a weak wine, very full bodied. Stands up to food very well but I also enjoy it very much by itself.
