868 Estate Vineyards – Merlot 2012 – Virginia

The nose reveals notes of cassis, violets, figs, spices and much more slightly notes of mushroom. The palate is mineral, fruity, balanced. We find notes of red fruits (cherry), black fruits and spices (vanilla, light cocoa in the background). The finish is fruity (plum, cherry, raspberry). The tannins are fine but a bit dry.
