This is Merlot with a twist. Bold aromas of dark fruit, plum, black berry, cocoa, cedar and dried flowers jump from the glass. A potent perfumed mix of berries, fresh herbs and roasted notes with a bit of mineral lift. Full-bodied and structured with blackberry to plum flavors. This wine is weighty and rugged of aspects of dusty berries with rich, dark accents of cocoa nib, roasted coffee and Winter spice. Intriguing, focused and delicious.
