Throughout literature, in both modern and ancient times, there have been five basic elements that give life on the planet. Our wine, Five Rivers, takes its name from these five elements which shape our vineyard and enliven our wines. Our vibrant red goddesses, the flowing icons of our labels, embody these elements. The Goddesses of Air, Fire, Earth, Time and Water serve as our inspiration and are representation of a world just waiting to be discovered.
I thought it a bit bland. Earthy taste dominates the finish.
Very bitter, doesn't benefit from decanting
Dark nose of cassis, some herbal tones perhaps sage, cola and licorice. Dark garnet in the glass. First thing on the palate is alcohol. A bit wild and rustic. Not my preferred style of merlot at all. Perhaps it's too old, I don't know. It's just more of a carignan or grenache style, which for merlot is unexpected.
