This dark ruby colored Merlot opens with a plum bouquet with hints of black raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is black raspberry jam with nicely integrated old oak with hints of boysenberry and black currant. The finish is rather dry and its building tannins are quite sticky and linger for quite a while. This wine will appeal to readers who like big fruity wines. I would pair it with a rack of barbecue ribs.
