Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

The wine’s youthful black cherry color is complemented by appealing aromas of blackcurrant and other black fruit. First impressions on the palate are soft and rather vibrant, dominated by the Merlot’s smoothness; this is followed by well-incorporated tannins sporting a veritable fruit basket of flavors. This is an easy-drinking wine, full of charm and ready to enjoy from now and to the next 5 years
