The wine was deep purple in color. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. Flavors of blackberry and mineral. Medium to full body with a super smooth texture and long finish. Very nice and Cathy liked.
Absolutely decadent. Decanted and enjoyed in the new cellar tasting room with my connoisseur friends--and all loved it. Full bodied from top to bottom to bottom. This wine fills out every dimension of robustness and stands head and shoulders over "the other wines in the room." Hats off Merryvale.
