This classic Merlot is not one to overlook for it is quite gratifying on the palate. Graceful, silky, yet with attractive tannic grip, the wine is forthcoming with tart aromas of sour cherry and lingering cacao nibs, with deep nuances of tobacco and cedar; this wine is complex, yet smooth which suggests it is most frequently savored in everyday dining.
