Guardian Peak Winery Merlot 2010
This intense, fruit-driven example of a South African Merlot was made for early enjoyment and will improve over the next 2 to 3 years
The nose of this youthful wine is dominated by an intense showing of ripe plum and cherry aromas. This is backed-up by toffee and mocha which is extracted from the oak. This wine offers up-front fruit and a good length of cherry flavors. The ripe fruit is complimented by an elegant chocolate flavor. This juicy and chewy wine offers a medium to long finish which is provided by its intriguing balance of fruit-flavor and complexity.
