Wine Review: This pitch black colored Merlot opens with an inviting black cherry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, juicy and rich. The flavor profile is a ripe black cherry with notes of blueberry and hint of faint cola, oak and minerality in the background. The finish is dry and its fine tannins linger for a little while. This wine is very food friendly and would pair very nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Blue and black fruit exudes from this Merlot with an incredible minerality with discernible shale notes. Bright and powerful yet at the same time delicate with a hint of the floral aromatic well known to Veeder aficionados.
