Dark black cherry in color. Wonderful fruit aromas of cassis, prunes, figs, blackberry jam, nice toasted sandalwood and fine liquorice fill the glass. The mouth-feel is rich and smooth with ripe fruit notes and elegant layers of ripe lush tannins. There are lovely dark chocolate notes and great structure from start to finish. The wine is in perfect balance with a pleasant earthy texture and classic minerality on the long, soft and warm finish. The fruit and alcohol provide great length and make this a very special Merlot to be paired with food. It will age gracefully for many years to come.
This is a wine to be aged. It has a huge maturation curve ahead and will gain many more nuances and facets. Serve just at room temperature. Pair this merlot with dishes you might think of for big, bold wines: steak, cassoulet, duck and decadent dark chocolate desserts.
