Black cherry and plum run deep, dark and rich throughout this concentrated Merlot (blended with Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot). Refreshingly brisk on the palate, it's nuanced with earthy hints of granite and bramble wood. It's bold and richly structured, yet impeccably balanced.
