Merlot can have a reputation for being soft and wimpy, but the Merlot from Rhinefarm takes on a robust personality. It is distinctively dark and weighty with aromas and flavors of blueberries, black tea and cocoa and spice box.

Leading off the Bordeaux varieties, the 2016 Merlot (82% Merlot, 9% Petite Verdot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon) has a great nose of smoke tobacco, ripe black cherries, currants, and chocolate. It's ripe, medium to full-bodied, has a fleshy, pleasure-bent style, and ripe tannins. It's another value gem in the vintage.

Medium to deep ruby, the 2016 Merlot has a lively nose with dried thyme, oregano, warm chocolate, smoked meats and a hint of blackcurrant bud with crème de cassis and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied, it has firm, gently chewy tannins, great freshness and a good core of spicy fruits, finishing lifted.
