This one's for Cabernet lovers! Although 100% Merlot, the intense inky ruby red hue and aromas of black cherry and cassis will make this a fun wine to slip into Cabernet tastings as a ringer to win.
The mid palate is thick with ripeness and broad textures and the slight grip of fine tannin frames the lingering fruit and espresso flavors in the long finish.
