8 Chains North 2010 Merlot (Virginia)

Editors' Choice

From the start, the aromas of cassis, dark cherry, leather and coffee grounds are medium in intensity, but with time they gain steam. Medium in body, this Merlot has firm tannins that are balanced by uplifting acids. The spiced plum flavor veers into the medium-long finish, which tastes like pink roses sprinkled with ground coffee beans.
