Wine Tasting NotesDark ruby hues. Loaded with vibrant vanilla, toasty oak and hints of smoke it's amazing there's still room for the aromas of berry jam and cola. Milk chocolate, a common denominator in the nose and palate, gives way to bright fruit flavors.
The long, cool harvest of 2003 produced varietally focused, densely structured wines. This Merlot is typical of the vintage in that respect. Aromas of violets and blackberry briars remind one of Cabernet Sauvignon while the fleshy texture alludes to Merlot. The attractive sweet espresso and black raspberry flavors add to the mystery. A bit of bottle age should allow the spicy, cherry fruit and vanilla oak to shine.
