Franciscan Merlot 2007
Appearance: Ruby red. Aromas: Sweet notes of dark plum, tobacco and black cherry are layered with hints of sage, subtle vanilla, and toasty oak. Rich, complex, and alluring. Flavors: Supple, elegant and seamless. Full flavors of dark berries, cocoa and vanilla with rich notes of earthy clove and spice. The smooth mouthfeel rounds out to a long finish.
