A lovely, delicate strawberry scent introduces
this fragrant merlot, its fruit fresh and floral as a rose.
Under the clean surface, there are more exotic aspects developing,
from roots, to humus, to an almost sanguine earthiness. The
taste makes a lasting impression, balanced and gracious, ready
for almost any food that goes with lighter red wines, from
seared tuna to grilled lamb.
