Really something different. This is a nice dry merlot with an incredibly fruity bouquet. The taste is unlike any merlot I have ever tried. The tannins are soft, but the finish remains rather long. Truly impressive wine that would be a great conversation wine with friends or family. I will definitely buy more.

Like a cassis candy wrapped in vanilla-scented chocolate, this is a tasty red for a crowd, a bargain-priced party pour.

Nutty-brambly aromas and red fruit on the nose lead to plum and black raspberry fruit on the palate. Therersquo;s some caramel flavor here, but itrsquo;s not as prevalent as it has been in other wines by this brand. Flavors are a little bright overall, but itrsquo;s still a good value.

Bright and lively, this is juicy with plum and berry flavors, shaded with hints of mint and cedar. Drink now.

Soft and supple, with sweet cherry and herb flavors prominent, lingering on the generous finish. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

taste A rich, deep garnet colour with purple hues. The nose is packed with ripe plum and red berry aromas with hints of spice and vanillin oak. The palate is full-bodied and fruit driven, with fruitcake and ripe plums balanced with subtle oak usage. The finish is smooth with lingering flavours enhanced by a trace of spice. cellar An easy drinking wine designed for immediate enjoyment. eat and enjoy An excellent food wine. Try with lamb, char-grilled salmon/tuna, roast poultry, Italian cuisine (especially pasta with meat sauces), steak and kidney and soft cheeses. dish Lamb shanks with white beans.
