2015 Merlot Estate
The 2015 Estate Merlot has a rich dark color with a vast bouquet of fruit and aromatic herb notes. This is not a shy wine – with each swirl you get a burst of blueberry and raspberry with a bouquet garni of rosemary, fennel, clove, sage and anise, accented with notes of oak, cedar and sandalwood. The wine has great depth of flavors of fruit and spice. Rich flavors of plum, blueberry, black cherry and fig are balanced by cranberry and tart cherry. Spice notes of black olive, clove and licorice intrigue the palate. In the finish, a blend of smooth and dense tannins gives you the flavor and texture of mocha, coffee and dark chocolate. This wine will cellar well for ten years – decant the wine for an hour if you would like to enjoy it now.
