Tasting Notes

A dusty intro to this dry styled, medium bodied Merlot with some notes of soy, cumin and capsicum, lifted by a lick of charred oak. 

Food Pairing

The palate has firm acidity and grippy tannins that frames the light, plummy fruit and vegetable extract character and calls for grilled lamb loin chops with a mint sauce.
