San Simeon Merlot 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
San Simeon Merlot expresses rich flavors of blackberry and cassis. Aromas of black fruit greet the nose, while barrel-aging contributes nuances of brown sugar and oak spices. Well-integrated tannins oer texture and a plush mouthfeel. A small percentage of Petit Verdot was added for additional complexity.
Focused aromas of blackberry jam, wood, baked soil and forest herbs on a hot summer day show on the nose of this bottling. There is a tense structure to the palate, where mahogany flavors frame roasted red fruits.
