2018 Mt George Merlot
Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of savory herbs such as a dried bay leaf, thyme, and tobacco leaves are joined by sweet clove. The wine hits the palate with a silky, smooth texture, and flavors of juicy bright red fruits that suggest pomegranate and berries. Well-integrated oak, earth, and spice notes, such as black tea, complement the fruit and lead to a long cocoa finish.
Food Pairing Notes
