Plum and blueberry ?avors with a touch of dried herb predominate in this soft, rich, mouth ?lling Merlot. These characteristics are enhanced by aging in small oak barrels for a toasty, spicy vanilla character and a lingering berry-cream ? nish. Drink this satisfying Merlot over the next two to four years.
