Intense blueberry nose with excellent concentration. Blackberries and blueberries dominate this wine. Lighter tannins and smooth bodied.
Not Strictly Merlot Bordeaux Blend 80 % Merlot 20 % Petire Verdot Aroma - Blueberry, Leather, Graphite, Black Cherry, Pencil shavings. Flavor - Blueberry, Leather, Chocolate, Black Cherry, Banana, Graphite, Pencil shaving, Moderate (30 second plus) finish, Very Complex. I really like Petite Verdot (Caveat emptor) so I love this wine, Very very complex flavor profile, each sip brings a new sensation of flavor, The banana flavor drove me nuts trying to identify it, after the fourth or fifth sip I figured out what it was I was tasting. The Merlot is very well balanced, a nd exceptional, Merlot is a grape which may be unappreciated in these days, but Columbia does Merlot justice, One can seee the heights to which Merlot can aspire in thise botttling, One may also see the excellent blending qualities which define Petite Verdot, This is an excellent blend and the winemaker should be commended on his (or her) masterful choice to blend these two wines to create this masterpiece, Unfortunately this a limited release as I would regularly seek out this wine in order to enjoy it's majestic cacophony of flavors.....
