Newton Unfiltered Merlot 2012

SKU 381


The aromas of this delectable Merlot are redolent of ripe blueberries and Satsuma plums with hints of violet, mocha and mint. Dark, plush and savory with black fruit flavors, it is richly textured with a firm structure. The long finish is round and warm with toasted cedar, mocha and roasted coffee bean flavors. The 2012 Merlot is a robust wine that can be enjoyed with a wide range of dishes, from red wine-braised lamb to grilled salmon. It is extremely versatile and is enjoyable with rich vegetarian dishes, such as lentils in a curry sauce or mushroom and parmesan tart.

Wine EnthusiastPlum and blueberry combine to nice effect in this wine that is dense and chewy at the beginning but yields softer textures as it goes. A sprinkling of cocoa and cinnamon accents the finish.
