A fresh and vibrant nose shows subtle aromas of sweet fruits such as black cherries and dark berries which are intermingled with lavender and rosemary. On the palate, this Merlot displays notes of aniseed with an earthiness and velvety texture supported by a fine tannin structure and fine acidity. The balance between tannin and acidity will allow the wine to age comfortably for the next 10 – 15 years.
