The wines nose consists of bright floral aromatics, elderberry, red and black crème fruits and spicy yet subdued notes of balsam, pencil shavings, and pine. The palate is broad and fat with a soft, long, yet lively finish that brings back merlot lovers to this wine again and again. This wine has the stuffing to cellar for a decade, but when it is this good, why wait?
