Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Gorgeous ripe fruit aromas that are rich and distinctive of ripe black cherries framed by a bouquet of spicy, toasty oak and black licorice. A flavorful wine with excellent depth and balance, the flavors include currant, enticing blackberry and spice, with a smooth chocolate-toffee aftertaste. It is a lush and supple, medium-bodied red wine with soft tannins and black fruit flavors lingering on a long aftertaste.
Ratings
"If you have not seen it, Mary Davidek has a fun posting on castellodiamorosa.com/blog about merlot. Sip along to the video with this merlot’s blend of red and black fruits, toasty oak and baking spice-infused flavors. This is yet another tasting panel winner from winemaker Brooks Painter and Castello di Amorosa." - Napa Valley Vintners Tasting Panel
