This deftly balanced and plush Merlot, beautifully exhibits the quality we've come to expect from Mount Veeder. The enticing bouquet of red berries,
smoldering spices and mint lead to intense flavors of crushed raspberry and black cherry. Dark chocolate and a hint of anise add to the complexity. Round and full mouth tannins complete the smooth and lingering finish. This wine will pair beautifully with anything off the barbeque and dark chocolate desserts.
"Shows the rich, concentrated tannins associated with Mount Veeder, as well as the rich, ripe fruit. Oak stands out, with toasty caramel, as well as strong flavors of blackberries, cherries and currants. Yet the real star is the mouthfeel. It’s fleshy and almost fatty and should develop in the bottle through 2013."
