Wine Review: This pitch black colored Merlot opens with an inviting black cherry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, juicy and rich. The flavor profile is a ripe black cherry with notes of blueberry and hint of faint cola, oak and minerality in the background. The finish is dry and its fine tannins linger for a little while. This wine is very food friendly and would pair very nicely with a filet mignon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Blue and black fruit exudes from this Merlot with an incredible minerality with discernible shale notes. Bright and powerful yet at the same time delicate with a hint of the floral aromatic well known to Veeder aficionados.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
