Merlot 2012

$22.00

Osprey’s Dominion Merlot offers classic dark plum aromas with blackberry preserves, sweet cedar, smoke and vanilla. And while the nose is rather fruity, the palate isn’t overly so with rich flavors of chocolate, mint and tobacco joining the party. The medium tannins are there, but not overly aggressive. With another year or so in bottle they should integrate even more. Overall, this wine is medium on body but full on flavor.
