The Corte Riva 2005 Merlot exhibits a deep concentration of fruit flavors such as blackberries and black cherries, along with a big thick and juicy mid-palate and undeniable succulence. The teamwork between Lawrence Cortez, Romel Rivera, and Bob Foley is undeniable and their winemaking philosophy is apparent in this brilliant red wine.
