The 2009 Diamond Merlot is a rich magenta color. Aromas of boysenberries, anise and cedar. Flavors of black currant, crème de cassis, plums, dark chocolate and spices.
2009 was an excellent vintage that featured only light spring rain, warm summer weather and no abrupt climate changes at season's end. These amazing conditions resulted in a richly textured Merlot that's abundantly flavorful and perfectly balanced by supple tannins and notes of spice and oak.
Smooth & Supple
One of my favorite Merlots to date!
