The color is a garnet red. On the nose is a collection of fresh herbs, including thyme, sage and clove with hints of hawthorn and quince followed by dark boysenberries and cherries. the flavor is of blackberry and moist earth notes coupled with clove, pepper and quince give this wine exceptional balance and soft tannins.
"Ripe and voluptuous, with very rich, long-lasting berry, cherry, mocha and spice flavors, liberally oaked and wrapped into fine, sturdy tannins. Lacks a bit of complexity, but otherwise a beautiful Merlot that trades on the variety’s opulently fleshy sensuality."
