Cakebread Cellars Merlot 2014

The Cakebread Cellars Merlot offers fragrant aromas of ripe black cherry, plum compote, blackcurrant and herbal spice. Mouth-filling and deeply concentrated on the palate, it is perfectly balanced by bright acidity and supple, fine-grained tannins, culminating in a long, spicy, cherry-laced finish. Enjoy this delicious Merlot now or age it another 5-7 years to fully savour its developing complexity.
