Liberty School Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

On the nose, the 2011 Liberty School Merlot displays aromas of violet, black cherry and ripe strawberry. Fruit forward and with surprising structure, it showcases a clean minerality. Engaging flavors of plum, cherry and raspberry are present from start to finish. It's a classic Merlot with signature velvety-fine tannins and a long silky finish.

Big, spicy wood derived aromas greet the nose followed by rich blueberry and black cherry notes layered over mineral and tomato leaf accents. This also gains a bit of a licorice tone drapes over everything. Smooth and rich on entry, the midpalate gains attractive clarity as the acidity pops a touch freshening the black fruit which retain a lovely floral and herbal inner mouth perfume right through the moderately long, juicy finish. There’s plenty of fruit here yet this remains rather fresh and lively in the mouth with subtle oak spice and chocolate overtones on the blackberry finish which turns just a bit peppery on the finale. 88pts
