Wine Review: This big Merlot from Merryvale is a bit young and perhaps needs more time in the cellar and certainly gets better with some aeration. It is pitch black colored and opens with a mild black currant bouquet with hints of black cherry and barnyard. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, bold and rich. The flavor profile is a mild black currant with notes of spice, oak, and gentle blackberry. The finish is dry and its big tannins linger for quite some time. The panel suggested pairing this wine with Cajun tuna or fra diavalo. Enjoy - KWGTP
