DetailsOld vines produce intense, concentrated grapes. This Merlot goes past plum, raspberry, and strawberry fruit, to dense blackcurrant, pepper and spice. The full body and lush, integrated tannins enfold deep oak notes of smoke and toast. The full, elegant finish goes on long after the last sip is gone.
