Red plums and candied fruit, with a touch of old wood flavor make this a pleasant wine. The nose brings chocolate and mint with focused deep red berry fruit. Drink soon and enjoy. —C.S.
Downrated by some tasters for its “metallic, abrupt finish,” and praised by others for its “black cherry, milk chocolate, coffee and dried herb” flavors, which gave it away as Merlot despite being tasted blind. “Out of whack” or “varietally correct”?—that is the question.
Funky aromas of red cabbage, green herbs and sweet cherries lead into a lean, herbaceous wine that finishes on a metallic note. Tasters’ views were more consistent on this wine than on this winery’s Merlot.
