    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is a deep, youthful purple color with a ruby rim. It has a typical Merlot nose with juicy plum and mulberry fruit, lifted spiciness and hints of dark chocolate and inkiness. The palate offers generous, ripe, pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity, structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality. Serve the wine at 18°C - 19°C with red meats, game and strong cheese.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A firm and well-structured Merlot with intriguing notes of woody spice and cigar tobacco woven into the black plum and dark berry flavors. Medium weight in the mouth with gripping tannins and a long, peppery finish. Drink soon and try with braised meats or lamb shanks.
