Broadside Merlot Margarita Vineyard 2019
Perfectly ripe fruit leads to the deeply pure and bright plum and black cherry aromas complementing subtle earth, vanilla, and spice. While inviting, lush, and awash with bright fruit, the palate also belies the serious nature of Merlot from Margarita Vineyard. Dry and structured, its fine tannins and fresh acidity make this a standout at the table, and for those with the patience, in the cellar as well.
Intense aromas of baked black cherry, red berries, star anise and mace are deliciously fruit-forward on the nose of this bottling. The wine lands with a ripe quality on the palate, offering that rich and dark-cherry and mulberry character, but also presenting white pepper and minty tarragon.
