Big and yet graceful. From a powerful vintage. Packs lots of fruit with plenty of earth and spice. The heat from the vintage pokes it's head up on the nose but adds complexity on the palate. Flowers. Cherries. Spice. Earth. Cocoa powder. Bay leaf. Cardmom. Chewy tannins. Fresh acidity. Don't be fooled by the nose. The palate over delivers. #liwine #nydrinksny #tasteny #merlot #wine

Needed an hour or two to open up but then...subtle dried cherry notes and truly mouthwatering tannins with round edges, fruit and presence. Great representation of North Folk Terroir and my favorite producer in the region.

Smells of plum and berry, and tastes of ripe stone fruits, secondary flavors of peppercorn and clove, tannins are velvety and makes for a delicious bottle of red merlot.
