Ripe, almost jammy red fruit with a little minty chocolate and a slight whiff of cinnamon. Satisfying and pleasant.

Drinks like a cab. Not over powering. Flavorful w/a clean finish.

This is a superb Sonoma Merlot from Ferrari Carano. Is it a medium bodied wine with rich berries on the nose and palette. There is also some spice on the palette with a smooth lingering finish. Highly recommended.
