This is a well-made varietal wine, mixed with 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. Chocolate, blackberry, and plum feature a delicate, palate of dark fruit tidied in long notes of clove and cinnamon.
Tasting Notes - A succulent, extravagant merlot conveying dark cherry and plum with intense flavors of dark pepper, youthful cedar, and crisp tobacco. The wine's rich surface and smooth tannins cushion this bold, dark fruited, spicy merlot
