Smoother than the Bordeaux tried immediately before, with a rich sugary fruity flavor. Cedar and coffee notes upfront, with a wide round finish with a hint of eucalyptus underneath.

Wine Tasting NotesThis wines richness and depth of flavor is announced in a bouquet of cherries and blackberry pie interwoven with violets and allspice. In the mouth the layers of flavor unfold both vertically and horizontally, with overtones of toffee and spice playing off the main notes of cherries and cassis as fine tannins carry the flavor array through the velvety finish.

Vibrant red fruit aromas of cranberry, raspberry, and strawberry rise from the glass and mingle with spicy notes of cardamom, anise, and vanilla. Similar flavors weave across the palate along with bright red plum and nutmeg. Soft, subtle tannins

Plum, black currant and herbal notes are nicely underscored by firm tannins and toasty oak. A great accompaniment to roast pork and holiday turkey.

Wine Tasting NotesThis Merlot displays great dimension in the nose with aromas of blueberry, ripe plum and black cherry accented by hints of violet, anise, pepper and dark chocolate. On the palate, upfront flavors of black cherry, plum and dark berries mix with medium soft tannins, sweet vanilla and well-integrated oak. A rich, silky texture and long, lingering finish are the final rewards. Slow braised beef short ribs with glazed garden fresh carrots will make an excellent pairing.

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of spiced plums and brown sugar with hints of smoke and truffle bloom into flavors of red and black cherries caramel and red plums plus a subtly spicy cinnamon tang. Medium-bodied with bright acid the wine offers generous fruit that carries through the finish.
