Black pepper and tobacco aromas swirl around the cherry cola core. Roasted nut and caramel oak flavors compliment the beautiful rich cherry fruit.

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.
