Tasting Notes

The nose is complex and deep, requiring reflection. Ripe and dusty black and red berry fruit, plum, vanilla, and cardamom, surprising since zero oak touched this wine at any point. The only wood was the cork used to seal the bottle, which arguably contributes some character. There is also a gaminess that develops as the wine breathes. In the mouth, the tannins grip tight, and persist. The wine is dry, yet ripe, and the elevated alcohol sweetens the finish. Decant this wine for several hours and enjoy in larger glasses. As with all of our Merlots, I would recommend aging.
