The 2016 Merlot flaunts a brick-red color with a touch of purple hue, smelling of cedar, angelica root, graphite, mocha and some slight pomegranate notes that are quite the delight. Clove and vanilla linger on the palate paired with black currants, soy, and juicy black plum. This medium-bodied wine showcases some structured tannins creating a hearty finish that will have you pouring glass after glass. Pair with Duck Breast and a Balsamic Cherry Reduction Sauce. Drink now through 2028. Varietal Composition: 100% Merlot.
