Now this is a lovely, soft and very ready to drink Saint-Emilion. 100% Merlot all of which is organically grown. Here you get the more earthy and veggie, tea leaf end of the Merlot spectrum. Hints of tart red cherry, a wee bit of smoke but the flavors remind us more of Cabernet Franc in their savory root vegetable flavors. Good grip but hardly a monster.
