Merlot's are less tannic and have less intense Blackcurrant flavours than Cabernet Sauvignon, producing softer, plumper, juicier, early maturing wines that somehow seem sweeter. Rich on the palate with flavours of Chocolate, Plums, Mint, Violet, Spice, Mocha, Fruit Cake and Nuts. Enjoy light to full flavoured red meat dishes and even fuller flavoured chicken dishes with this wine.
