Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Merlot from Washington State opens with a ripe blackberry and black licorice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and fruity. The flavor profile is a ripe black raspberry with notes of blueberry and acai berry. I also detected a hint of oak and touch of anise. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are dusty and linger in your mouth for a while. This Merlot would pair well with barbecue ribs and it will appeal to fans of Aussie Shiraz. Enjoy – Ken
