Red Diamond Merlot 2010
The 2010 growing season experienced chilly spring temperatures, and a mild summer. Waiting for that late, warm fall to arrive pushed harvest out weeks later than normal. But having the extra hangtime allowed the fruit to develop beautifully concentrated flavors, and become a very layered, textural wine with fragrant fruit impressions that simply jump out of the glass. Warm, rich and distinctly spicy, the velvety texture and supple tannins invite you to take another sip and let each dazzling flavor linger.
Nice crimson color. some dried berry fruit and dark plum on the nose. Really nice mouth feel with medium tannins with dark fruits abound. This merlot has beautiful structure and ends with a medium finish. Washington state has its act together when it comes to Merlot.
Luscious, fruit forward wine. Well blended. Perfect with food or alone. What a nice surprise...got it as a gift, but would buy it again.
A Merlot that is rich, full, a note of oak on a mouthful of cherry and Blackberry flavor. Smooth , surprisingly non-tannic finish. Lingers in the mouth. Very good wine.
Bought randomly, once it breaths for a little while it is nice.
