On the nose, a good swirl offers generous aromatics of freshly grated nutmeg, cassis, Shiso leaf and black cherry. It’s definitely not a wimpy Merlot! It’s supple body, gives way to flavors of anise, blueberry compote, with slight clove flavor on the finish. It’s balanced with friendly flavors of red fruits such a plums and freshly dried prunes. Plus, the oaky tannins that create a harmony of flavors that is suitable for sipping and many food pairings. It’s a Merlot not to be missed!
