Blend: 81% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot
Freemark Abbey 2004 Merlot is dark ruby in color and quite opaque with
richness. The wine has inviting depth of aroma and bouquet, filled with Bing cherry, dark red
raspberry compote, milk chocolate, aromatic cedar, mushroom and violets. The flavor is bright and
crisp with somewhat drying tannins. The fruit is reminiscent of dried cherries or cranberries.
