Appearance: Deep ruby red intensity with crimson accents
Aroma: Complex and layered with black plum and currants, vanilla,
sage, and peppercorn, and sweet notes of toasty oak.
Flavors: Round, full-bodied palate with vibrant dark cherry fruit, sweet herbs and silky mouthfeel. Very supple and elegant, the finely knit tannins highlight bold fruit and sweet tobacco notes, giving a velvety finish.
"Pale garnet hue. Complex scents of wild cherry, vanilla and chocolate with a hint of dust and sweet tobacco. Full, refined tannins and ripe flavors of raspberry and wild cherry. Hints of vanilla and white chocolate in the raspberry-spiked close."
but not great
Opened with several other bottles over long weekend and this stood out. Nice fruit, good aroma, soft and lush. Glad I bought 2 bottles - will buy more.
Pleasant wine, complex and fruitty. One of the nicest Merlots for the price.
