Broadside Margarita Vineyard Merlot 2018
|California, Central Coast, Paso Robles
Intense aromas of baked black cherry, red berries, star anise and mace are deliciously fruit-forward on the nose of this bottling. The wine lands with a ripe quality on the palate, offering that rich and dark-cherry and mulberry character, but also presenting white pepper and minty tarragon.
Bright ruby. Smoky, oak-tinged cherry and blackberry scents take on a floral aspect with air. Round and creamy in texture, showing good heft to the appealingly sweet, spice-accented dark fruit flavors. Subtle tannins sneak in late on a long, smooth finish that leaves sappy cherry and vanilla notes behind.
