Wine Tasting NotesThe Reserve Merlot is an evocative and elegant wine of a dark ruby hue with aromas of ripe black cherry, black plum, and hints of cocoa, cinnamon and nutmeg. The entry is sweet vanilla with baking spice accents throughout the palate. Black cherry, blueberry, boysenberry and soft elegant tannins round out the finish.
