Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot opens with a pleasant black raspberry and plum bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and savory. The flavor profile is black plum with notes of oak. I also detected hints of minerality and black currant. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are friendly. This is a very good everyday wine. Pair it with a burger. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Intricate layers of black cherry, plum, currant, and wild berry mingle with a hint of spice. The soft, delicate, elegant tannins of this Bordeaux varietal carry these aromas and flavors to a long lingering finish.
