Core of dark fruits with just a touch of boysenberry, little bit spice. Medium-full bodied, moderate finish, barest hint of tannins, and very subtle oak.
although Merlot gets a bad rap, still don't understand that, it is better than a lot of expensive cabs Ive had. You get your moneys worth and a wine to really talk about. nice nose, very smooth and low acidic which is great for me since over time that has been a health concern for me. very nice.
