This is truly a Cab-lovers merlot. This wine could make any cab drinker think twice about passing up merlot. The nose is big and complex. Spices, black pepper and dark fruit turn into vanilla, rich caramel and maraschino cherries. Waves of dried sage, mushroom, and that ever present forest floor evolve into rose and hints of floral notes. The palate is lean with noticeable tannins up front. The tannins soon mellow out to reveal dusty cocoa, chocolate and jammy fruit. The mineral finish evenly coats and leaves hints of oak and cedar. Just beautiful!
