Natalie's Score: 89/100

Rich and satisfying with velvet layers of black fruit, just the right amount of oak. Full-bodied but so very smooth. Great dinner party wine or for more casual potlucks.

Merlot food pairings: stews and casseroles, paellas, pastas, soft cheeses.

Voluptuous Veal Wine

Lee Newby, AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 100% Merlot
Good plus wine with red plums and currents and a touch of black cherry over baker’s spices. The wine has medium fruit intensity and concentration with good complexity. The finish is medium and sweet. The medium minus mature tannins and medium acidity give good balance. Drink now and for 3-4 years.

Intense, ruby-red in color with a bouquet dominated by fresh ripe fruits such as
berries and spicy notes associated with components in the oak barrels. Mediumbodied,
very silky, and well-balanced with good acidity that lends a fresh sensation.
Long and pleasing on the finish.
