First night was a bit tight with coarse tannins on the finish. Decided to leave until second day and was rewarded with a plush, smokey wine that was much better integrated. Some sharpness on the finish but in better harmony with the dark cherry fruit and velvety texture of the wine. Nose more fragrant on day 2 as well.
Just pulled out a bottle to drink with non-wine friends. This is quite nice for what it is - it's ripe and plush, with dark berry and some plummy fruit, cocoa powder and spice. Maybe a bit of leather and herb. It's not to heavy - it's lively with some drive. Not really my style, but it did the job. 14.5/20.
A beautiful rose petal color. Smooth aromas and flavors of cherries and berry fruit. This sumptuous merlot is delicate yet firm, like the hands of the strong, determined, and passionate woman who worked so hard to create it. As I drink it, I sense the Peace that permeates her vineyard.
