Sipping Fine Wine

Mer Soleil named after the two forces of nature – “the sea and sun.” Grapes sourced from vineyards in the southern and middle areas of Santa Lucia Highlands, deep Ruby with youthful aromas of red fruits and bits of smoky pepper spice. On the palate flavors of cranberry, raspberry and tart cherry with toasty pepper spice, savory, good mouthfeel. Medium+ finish, fine tannins well integrated ending with fruit and a toasty oak character. Tasting Sample!

Their Silver Unoaked bottle was not really my cup of tea, so I wondered what an oaked bottle would be like.
Nice nose mix of stone fruits, melon, and lime, and hint of sea breeze as well. Palate was round and smooth, with notes of minerals and some tropical fruits. Acidity is a bit dull, with a medium spicy finish. Not bad at all.
