This Merlot offers up aromas of dark cherry and smoke. Following its fruit driven nose is a delicate palate filled with forward fruit. Rich flavors of black cherry jam, cassis, and cocoa nuances fill out a palate that is rich, smooth and elegant. Supple tannins fill the mid palate and linger in a finish that is complex and satisfying. This wine is not overstated and is great with food. Enjoy with charcoal grilled steak or seared pork tenderloin medallions in a molasses-balsamic glaze on a bed of wilted collard greens.
