Wine Review: Those of you that enjoy a delightful Merlot, look no further than this wine. This wine has a pleasant, but restrained bouquet. On the palate, this wine is elegant and smooth as silk. The flavor profile is great. This is a superior Merlot to consume with your favorite meal. The finish is nicely dry and lengthy. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This merlot is structured with power and elegance. The rich, concentrated front and middle palates roll seamlessly into the generous, silky finish. Aromatics and flavors offer concentrated black cherry, plums and currants.

Buy it: Use 1000 Corks to find stores that sell Merlot.
