Wine Review: This very dark ruby colored Merlot opens with a pleasant blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a tasty blueberry with notes of dark chocolate and a touch of black pepper. The finish is rather dry and its savory dusty tannins are nicely prolonged. This wine would pair nicely with beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Rich and round, with ripe plum, cooked cherries and chocolate flavors. Medium-bodied with a lingering finish.
