This wine shows off the heart & soul of the limestone terroir where Merlot’s boasts its uniqueness and ripeness. The nose subtly gives off red and black berries, liquorice and a fresh note. The mouth is characterized by its beautiful balance between roundness, deepness & freshness, held up by its tasty complexity of blackberries, cherries and a discreet oakyness.
