TASTING NOTES

Appearance: Dark ruby purple core and slightly lighter rim with moderate, slightly stained tears.

Aroma: Aromatic with ripe black and red cherry, blackcurrant and a little plum with toasty oak, cedar, dried leaf and dark chocolate notes.

Palate: Full-bodied with ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit on the entry with savory herbal notes and barrel spice mixed with haunting violet floral elements. The mid-palate has a rich chocolate element and the finish is long with returning cherry joined by violet floral and subtle camphor notes surrounded by ripe chewy tannins. This is a Merlot made in a style that has its roots in the Bordeaux region and would be a perfect pairing with classic foods of that region like duck confit or cassoulet, as well as many hearty Basque dishes.
