This Merlot offers black cherries, brambly red fruit, pomegranates, red currants, cinnamon, and layers of graphite and licorice. On the palate, this Merlot has fine, firm tannins alongside mixed berry tart, wild strawberries, dark cranberries, rhubarb, toasted walnuts, chocolate-covered cherries, and toasted brioche. It is supple in texture and shows attractive depth on the finish.
