Super aromatic, with bold aromas of black cherry, blackberry, savory herbs, red currant, soft spice, lightly toasted oak, red licorice and a hint of pepper.
Darkly juicy and bold, with a rush of flavor, starting with black cherry and blackberry cocktail, and leading to dried fall leaves, savory herbs, flint, red licorice, subtle dark spice - with a hint of grilled fennel at the very end.
Today’s wine is rich, balanced and incredibly good with so many different types of food, from fine cuisine, to backyard burgers or a plate of spaghetti.
Enjoy this wine with my fullest recommendation.
Deep, dark red with a dark but translucent heart. Spin the wine and tall, chunky legs adhere high up on the glass wall, running downward, streaking the glass with ruby.

Black cherry, blackberry cocktail, dried fall leaves, savory herbs, flint, red licorice, subtle dark spice and a hint of grilled fennel at the very end.
Bold fruit flavors last for a very long time, ultimately fading as soft tannins take hold, gradually drying the palate, leaving behind a soft dryness that encourages you to take another juicy sip.
This is Merlot, so pair it with almost anything. The food-friendliness of this wine makes it easy to pair with everything from grilled meats, to fish, pork, appetizer courses and more. We’ll serve ours with a giant plate of spaghetti and meatballs!
