Previously available for $20.00
Leafy and sweet on the nose though in a fresh way. This is packed with wild cherry, plum and black currant fruit streaked with hints of espresso, earth, white pepper and a slight floral iris note. Bright and fresh on entry with real lift to the palate; there’s lovely fresh plum and wild black cherry fruit along with a touch of vanilla and some espresso foam and gaining a hint of dried herb on the backend. The finish shows decent length but terrific freshness with slightly chewy tannins and solid acids supporting blackberry flavors through the finish and ending with a light mineral tinge. Not terribly complex but a classic old school bottle of california Merlot. 90pts
