Lush and luscious, merlot fans are going to love this wine. The swanky aromas of oak spice, smoke and currants blend gracefully with fresh cigar tobacco and carmel apple. Well structured with firm tannins, the taste of juicy black berries and vanilla is a wonderful precursor to the rich, full bodied finish of chocolate.
-Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
