    Merlot

    A generous variety on all soil types, and probably the easiest of all to grow, but it is only where the combination of vine, territory and site climate is optimal that Merlot yields truly thrilling wines.

    Appearance: brilliant, deep ruby red. Nose: wet earth, fruit preserve, aromatic wood and spicesand; pervasive with signature violets and morello cherries. Palate: dry, full-bodied and headily alcoholic, alluringly herbaceous, assertive character.
