This is a stellar and immensely attractive Merlot that's sure to impress any true wine lover. Fig, black plum flesh, sweet cola glaze and black raspberry sauce dominate, with accents of leathery spice and cigar tobacco adding depth and complexity. It's round and full in the mouth with dainty fine grain tannins and a long finish. This can easily be drunk now or cellared for another 2–5 years.
