ITEM 8107421 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility; Purchased upon release; Consignor is original owner
A blend of 100% Merlot that saw 60% new French oak... a plump, rounded, sexy Merlot that's loaded with notions of blueberry, violets, plums and graphite. It's hard to resist, and I see no reason to delay gratification either.
Firm in texture, with licorice accents to the ripe cherry, red pepper and loamy earth flavors, finishing with persistence and a light tannic bite.
Inviting aromas and flavors of blackberry, spices, bitter chocolate and violet. Boasts lovely sweetness of fruit and a pliant texture, with nicely integrated acidity giving definition and lift to the creamy middle palate.
