The Merlot has upfront notes of vibrant dark cherries and raspberries with hints of wild herbs, tomato leaf and dark chocolate enlivened by touches of cinnamon, cloves,orange peel and earthy tones. The palate is supported by a supple, smooth tannin structure.

This medium-bodied wine has soft, velvety tannins and is best enjoyed with herb crusted lamb, oxtail or hearty stews.
