It's all Merlot, and it's all good. This is a wine that would make our Sexiest Wines of the Year list, if we had one. Lush and medium-full in the mouth, Grammonte has chewy tannins and a palate full of ripe blackberry, toast, chili pepper and a dash of red berry. Good acidity keeps the tannins in line; it finishes very long with more of the same flavors, plus some black pepper. Bouquet is a tantalizing mix of blackberry and cedar, doused in brown sugar and olive oil.
