Rosewood Estates Winery – Merlot 2010 – Niagara Escarpment

The nose is fruity (red fruits) and spicy (vanilla, pepper, mocha). The palate is powerful and expresses notes of red fruits (strawberries, very ripe raspberry) associated with hints of black fruits (plum, fig) and spices (mocha, vanilla and above). The finish is of good length and is on the ripe red fruit. The tannins are well made but still need to relax. I recommend to age this wine 2 or 3 years in more.
