Top Notes For
Dr. Owen Bargreen

The 2009 Merlot by Ferrari Carano has aged gracefully since its release eight years ago. On the nose, lighter herbal undertones mingle with black tea, dark currants and shades of red cherry tomato that are all neatly woven together in the glass. Soft, with a silky texture, the Merlot delivers ripe black fruits that combine with chocolate covered red cherry and Asian spices. Showing really good tension considering its age, this beautiful wine will cellar well over the next five to seven years. Drink 2019-2025- 91

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