Forgeron Cellars Merlot Red Mountain Klipsun Vineyard 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

This beauty offers big fruit, bright acidity, integrated tannins and a long finish. The bouquet offers roasted coffee bean, caramel and spicy notes of clove and anise. Savor loganberry, cassis, white pepper and tobacco on your palate; a sure pleaser.

Here is an elegant merlot with a spectrum of sensory delights. This merlot offers big fruit, with a full round mouth, bright acidity, integrated tannins and a long finish. The bouquet offers roasted coffee bean, caramel, rose petal and some spicy notes of clove and anise to delight your nose. On the mouth, you’ll enjoy loganberry, cassis, plum and cherry cordial. Savor the spiciness of white pepper and hint of brown sugar, followed by rich tobacco. With beautiful structure and range, this long finisher will not disappoint!
