With a perfect ruby color this wine is a melding of noble character with fine elegance and great style. A wonderfully expressive nose, full of raspberry and blackberry aromas.
On the palate, the luscious, creamy chocolate texture carries plenty of fruit, the liquorices extending the flavor profile, with soft, supple tannins and balanced acidity.
There is no doubt why this estate grown, single-vineyard Merlot wins gold medals at every outing!
An ideal pairing for chocolate desserts but is also excellent with soft meats such as pork chop, rack of lamb or filet mignon where the the meat is the primary flavor and the cooking process involves fats.
