Tasting notes

Dark, almost black, color. Clean, powerful, vibrant blackberry and black cherry fruit aromas with slight floral notes, seamlessly balanced by toast, vanilla, cocoa and spice aromas. I love the smell of this wine! The mouthfeel is rich and full with a great balance of dark, vibrant fruit and toasty, spicey oak flavors with a touch of smoke. This is a big merlot that is able to balance intense concentration and plenty of structure but still have the softer feel of a merlot.
