When you combine a vintage of low yields and great concentration with a grape that loves to express itself on Rhinefarm, the result is a youthfully coy wine that is patiently waiting to give a full reveal. Tightly coiled aromas of darky berries, violets, cocoa, and anise yearn to greet the senses while the palate divulges a lusher, richer character than its medium body belies. Hinting at savory flavors of layered kirsch, berries, chocolate, and dried herbs, the 2015 Merlot will dazzle when it hits the spotlight, but appreciates a little more time or few hours decanting to get there.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Merlot is medium to deep garnet-purple in color and opens with a great intensity of crushed blackberries, black plums and black cherry scents with touches of cloves, star anise and menthol. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers pleasant restraint and a savory character with chewy tannins and an earthy finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine possesses a hearty helping of tannin and herbal elements that won't appeal to all. Full bodied and concentrated in ripeness, the dried herbs and cedar dominate on the nose and palate. Small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec are blended in.
