Ultimate Beverage Challenge 91 points - The deep and dark aromas call to mind cocoa dusted cranberries alongside wild thyme and rosemary. Hints of pine and dark berries turn to gentle nutmeg and bittersweet chocolate. Gentle tannins are supple, creating a soft texture. (Jun 2016)
Created in a Bordeaux style blend, this Merlot offers rich plums and black cherry flavors, accented by savory spices and toasted oak, with a soft, supple texture and lingering finish. A wine that is bold and expressive but unassuming and approachable.
