With layers of complexity and a rich aromatic profile, exceptional fruit flavor sand a velvety-rich texture

Nose of blackberry, cherry, strong coffee, & a slight hint of chocolate. The taste has the fruit but a strong coffee flavor, especially on the back end. It may be an okay wine, but the coffee flavor is too overwhelming and prevents it from pairing well with many foods.

You order a vanilla sundae, pronounce 'vanilla' with a 'b', and smother the sundae with strawberry syrup. It comes served in wicker. In the rain.

This is and older tasting note I brought per a request, I am not sure if this one is still drinking well today, so please report following opening. Deep red in color, nose full of green notes, eucalyptus, black and red fruits, black and red fruits, nice finish with soften tannins. My score 87, drink up

Red color. A cherry bomb of aroma hits you immediately. The taste is also cherry but both us is immediately thought NyQuil. Not bad, but a slight cough syrup presence. Very smooth and well balanced. A great #merlot for the price.

Smoke from a nice candle and vanilla in with the red fruits on the nose. Flavor is pretty rich with plenty of pie and vanilla to go with the berries and cherries. Could use a bit more acid and ink but represents WA Merlot adequately.
