This Merlot is deep red with pronounced cherry, ripe chocolate and wild plum flavors. Intense and vibrant on the palate and dark ruby colored, this wine exhibits ripe, complex blackberry and raspberry aromas, finishing with a rich array of pretty berry flavors. There is ample acidity and tannin to merit short term cellaring if you can wait!
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Deep ruby red color. The nose is vibrant with the scents of red cherries with plum and mocha notes. The palate is in full accord delivering a lush, ripe fruit core with plenty of tart acidity married with accents of spice, and soft oak notes. Great Value (Jun 2014)
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - Fresh fruit abounds on the nose with dark plum, rhubarb and black cherry flavors taking the stage. In the mouth, it is vibrant and continues to harp on the dark fruit motif before finishing with a bright acidity and soft fruit flavors.” (Jun 2013)
