Wow. Seriously impressive, this medium to full bodied Merlot has a ton of finesse and well integrated fruit flavors that are smooth as silk on the palate. Great with a variety of foods ... this is a Cabernet lovers Merlot if there ever was one! Outstanding for the money and well worth stocking the wine rack with!

Product Description:

"Impressive for its depth of red and black fruit, this release delighted me for its its 'smooth-as-velvet' spiced plum and black fig fruit flavors. Freshly snappy and brisk right out of the bottle, this opened up beautifully with 20-30 minutes in a decanter, revealing even more complexity with notes of baking spice and sassafras along a beaming bright backdrop of flavors. To top it off, this finished nicely, with a long and silky texture." --Stephen C. Fahy, DWS

"The 2011 Merlot was sourced from high on the eastern edge of the Barossa Valley off our Angus Brae and Three Springs vineyards. Here, sheltered hillsides and cooling afternoon gully winds coming down from Eden Valley, temper the warm Barossa sunshine and ensure conditions are ideal for ripening Merlot." - Importer
