Enjoyed this. Great with a good steak. Heavy flavor.
External Reviews for Franciscan Merlot
Rich ruby red intensity with crimson accents. Incredibly rich aromas, with intense blackberry and black cherry, accented by vanilla-toasted oak with hints of cassis.Supple and ripe blackberry, black cherry and hints of toasted oak and vanilla fill the mouth with a full mid-palate and a long, round finish.
"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." --Winery
