This wonderful Texas Merlot has a rich ruby hue and luscious legs that cling to the glass. It has extravagant aromas of ripe cherries, and black raspberries with delicate vanilla. Flavors of cherries, red currant, and hints of black pepper are held in place by soft tannins. This Merlot finishes strong with flavors of dark cocoa.
