This Chianti is what every Merlot strives to be. Out of all the wines I've had, I'd say this is one of the few that have such a nice vibrant ruby red color to it. I spent way too much time just staring at the wine, it's really quite fabulous. It's very fragrant on the nose, with a nice pepper taste, as well as a hint of rose petal taste. It's also got a watercress flavor that is oftentimes associated with Merlots, only here, it's not overpowering, and adds a nice minerally flavor to the wine. It's got average astringency, and it's a little hot.

Wine Tasting NotesRich purple and burgundy in color, this varietal has lingering aromas of aged leather and cedar with a hint of sour-cherry syrup, spiced with black pepper and nutmeg. This wine is bold and spicy on the palate, with rounded blackberry accents and hummus flavors. Smooth tannins, and a clean body and structure are well balance with the taste's dry sensation. Enjoy with roasted portabella mushrooms, roasted pork, or rabbit. This wine can be enjoyed at present but with proper cellaring will improve and soften over the next five years.
