Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot opens with an attractive spicy cherry bouquet with a whiff of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, soft, elegant, and very easy to drink with very juicy cherry flavors. The finish is dry and its managed tannins linger nicely. This wine would nicely complement veal parmigianna. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A deep, dark ruby color, bouquet of dark ripe berries, raspberry, reduced cherry tones, with a touch of mint. Cola, cassis, and cherry drop tone give way to long earthtone finish with medium tannin.
