Deep, dense, brilliant red color. The nose is wonderfully complex
seamlessly marrying ripe raspberry and cherry with notes of black
pepper, clove, leather, cigar box and mineral tinged earth. The palate
echoes the nose offering as many tart fruits, cranberry like, as ripe
flavors accented by earth and oak. Firm but chewy tannins emerge on the
finish that lingers for some time revealing accents of spice and earth.
This Merlot is just a pup with a long life ahead.
