...really attractive merlot with blackberry, chocolate and walnut aromas, as well as black olives. Similar flavors on the palate with soft, round tannins...full and dense, yet agile and very pretty. Plenty of blackberry, herb and chocolate flavors. Long, persistent finish.
Hints of iodine accent dried raspberry and roasted cherry flavors that are broad-textured and firmly tannic. Offers juicy richness midpalate, with a taut, minerally finish that features chocolate nib notes.
Chocolate-covered cherry, cedar and baking spice highlight a softly textured palate of integrated oak, finishing lushly decadent.
