Wine Review: This ruby colored Merlot opens with a mild red cherry bouquet with a hint of cedar and cinnamon. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, very well balanced, and silky. The flavor profile is tasty black cherry with a hint of blueberry. The finish is rather dry and its moderate tannins stick around for some time. The panel felt this easy going Merlot would pair well with steak tips with a ginger sesame marinade. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Aromas of ripe wild berries carry hints of bay leaf, forest floor, and cedar. Fleshy blueberry and blackberry flavors lay atop a skeleton of well-structured tannins. A silky wine that envelops the mouth and ends with a lengthy finish.
