"Fruit-forward aromas of strawberry juice, light mint and cola pop on the juicy nose of this bottling. The palate is also loaded with ripe and smashed red fruits, lifted by a touch of sarsaparilla, proving easy to quaff. " Wine Enthusiast 90 Points
"A few years back, we planted a new block of Merlot in our celebrated Marinus Vineyard in the Cachagua region of Carmel Valley. We now have enough to continue including some Merlot in our Marinus Bordeaux-style blend, as well as some for a small production on its own. It’s already a roaring success and we are certain you will love it, too!
In the glass you will see a wine of deep crimson red. The aromas show bright dark red fruit scents with subtle spice notes. The palate is very rich and soft, with flavors of dried cherries and cranberries, accented with hints of chocolate. The delicious flavors linger beautifully on the long, powerful finish. A superb Merlot!" - Winemaker Notes
