Turning Leaf Reserve Merlot


1.5 L


Product Description

It has a clear, bright medium depth violet to ruby color with a least some structure to it. There are some berry notes (blackberry) to this wine, but somewhat on the faint side. There is some good balance here as well as a medium finish. Its definitely a wine with lively acidity, (good with a meal perhaps) and somewhat aggressive tannins. Another year might help this. Better if you let this breath for 15 minutes.
