Our wine tonight is the Merlot from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills of North Carolina.
Estate grown Merlot.
Deep maroon in color with a short purple rim.
Aromatic bouquet of red plum, bing cherry, fresh blueberry, vanilla extract, black tea, and mocha.
Dry, medium-plus bodied, pleasantly sultry with long cascading legs.
Fruit forward with notes of black currants, pomegranate, cherries, blackberries, and fresh figs, gently fading with hints of cedar, cigar box, black licorice, and leather.
$22 a bottle.
