    Here's everything you want from Merlot and more. The supple approach gives way to an almost time released array of black currants, black cherries, plummy mocha dusted minerals that linger through the dense core and linger through the long finish. Things only get better from here.
    In order to win friends and influence people, try this with antipasto, grilled or roasted meat, poultry, meaty fish, and young cow's and sheep's milk cheeses.

    Color: Garnet/purple

    Nose: Toasty oak with black fruit and some loamy forest floor

    Palate: Great bright fruit in this medium-bodied wine. Good red and black fruit with the secondary and more savory truffle and earth coming through in the finish. Good.

    Color: Dark garnet, ruby edges

    Nose: Great savory green olive and blackest fruit with a hint of oak, menthol and anise.

    Palate: Great char, some leather, supported by a medium-full round mouth. Black fruit and a hint of blue. Good.
