This exquisite Merlot opens with plum, rose hip, blood orange, fresh peach and cherry in the nose, with undertones of laurel and dried orange peel. Flavors of juicy red fruit explode on the palate, and an uplifting freshness carries the mid-palate with complex and dense tannins, plenty of fruit and a soft transition to a lush, lingering aftertaste. Well-balanced acidity and a silky tannin structure on this young wine leaves plenty of room for many years of aging.
Each season has its pleasures and presents an opportunity to build health and enhance longevity. Enjoying sunshine and leisurely outdoor meals with family are great in summer. However intense heat and air pollution dry our throat, irritate eyes and aggravate feverish conditions and hot tempers. Rich eating and drinking provoke hangovers.
