This enjoyable Merlot sports a generous dose of juicy, black cherry and blueberry scents with a noticeable vanilla oakiness tinge. The flavors parallel with the aromas, offering beautiful shades of ripe berry fruit mixed with vanilla accented by a lovely mix of oak and chocolate. It is supple and nicely balanced with a slight bit of tannin that lends the proper amount of firmness. While eminently drinkable right now, this wine should continue to improve over the next couple of years and remain very enjoyable for several years thereafter. Try pairing with the Meat Loaf suggested in this issue’s recipe section.
