Dark fruits, pomegranate, plum, spice, pepper and subtle menthol and eucalypt characters swirl from the glass. A pretty palate with classic merlot softness of chocolate and creamy fruits. Smooth blackberries and blueberries with hints of cherry cola. Soft, plush and velvety. Sticky pork ribs are just the thing to enjoy with this.
