Veenwouden Merlot Reserve 2008

The ruby coloured Merlot 2008 is an elegant wine that exhibits flavors of raspberry, strawberry and cherry in dark mocca chocolate. On the palate it has good underlying acidity with rich, ripe fruit, soft tannins and a lingering aftertaste. This is an elegant wine with finesse.
