Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This wine has typical Merlot aromas of ripe blackberry, plum, black pepper, earth and a touch of roasted green bell pepper. The first thing you recognize on the palate is a very smooth texture, carrying ripe, forward fruit and spicy vanilla notes. The flavors are backed up by mild to medium acidity and soft tannins. My note: Loaded with black fruit and glycerin, this full-bodied number has aromas of vanillin, prunes, black plums and kirsch.

Merlot food pairings: pocini mushrooms, barbecued backribs, pan-seared steak, Mexican dishes, rack of lamb.
