2015 Merlot


An intensely-colored merlot, the wine has aromas of dark cherry juice, plum skins, cocoa powder, milk chocolate, and graphite, underscored by licorice, vanilla, clove, mocha, and minty dried herbs.



This Merlot is very soft, lush, and round, with balanced acidity and fine dusty tannins that persist on the finish. Flavors of bright sweet cherries combine with anise, black pepper, clove, and dark red plums, supported by green olive, soy, sage, and bay leaf. This is a food-lover’s Merlot!
