Medium red-purple; oak unduly dominates the bouquet, but on the palate quite powerful sweet fruit joins the fray together with oak and an acid tweak on the finish. Plenty of all-up flavour.

Darkly colored and flavored, this Merlot shows lots of toasty oak wrapped around a core of berry and black plum flavors. The mouthfeel is even and smooth, but the spicy finish turns a bit woody, picking up a dry, tart edge as the oak takes over. Tastes rather like a Cabernet, with its dark hue and flavor range.
