Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Merlot from Mt. Brave shared top honors in a recent mini-blind tasting that we conducted. It opens with a very inviting blueberry and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a chocolate covered cherry cordial with notes of blueberry. We also detected some hints of oak and vanilla mixed in. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins show very nice length. The Panel suggested pairing this very good Merlot with short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: This Merlot boasts notes of dark red fruit that seamlessly blends with the power of Mt. Veeder tannins. Asian spice, vanilla, rose petal and a long finish highlight this wine.
