Wine Review: The Particular Merlot from Bianchi reminds me of classic Bordeaux. It is ruby colored and opens with a mild black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with hints of tart black cherry and a touch of old oak. The finish is dry and its mild and refined tannins drift away nicely. This Merlot will remind you of a nice Right Bank wine. It is ready now and will be a perfect complement to beef bourguignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Immediately appealing visually, with an intense red color and violet/ruby hues, the Particular Merlot has a complex aroma, with hints of marmalade, red fruit, and subtle smoke, spice and vanilla notes, which repeat in the mouth. This Merlot has the soft voluptuousness associated with the variety, but with a presence on the palate not usually seen in most Merlots.
