Wild rose growing in a forest glade. Mediterranean slopes lush and green, the heady fragrances rising in the summer’s heat. This vibrant collage of aromas alludes to the complexity of our 2010 Merlot. A deceptively soft attack masks the underlying structure, making this wine a chameleon capable of fitting in to any wine appropriate situation.
My Tasting Notes:
Deep inky color. Musty oak smell, like a California wine cellar that is underground. With all the jammy cherries. Nice woodsy grippy wine.. This is a Kim Wine. Fruits all right as it comes into the mouth.. Slight tannins. This is a Big Lush Wine.
