Chloe Merlot 2015
|Region||California, Central Coast, Monterey|
Our Chloe Merlot is a full-bodied, elegant wine with a rich burgundy color palette, soft tannins and smooth acidity. Abundant flavors of freshly picked blackberries, black cherry and ripe plum lead to a plush, velvety mouthfeel followed by delicate notes of vanilla, mocha and spice. This complex, sensuous wine is exceptionally well-balanced with sophisticated intensity and a silky finish that lingers on the tongue.
Candied red fruit, turned earth, crushed rocks and purple flowers show on the nose of this bottling. There's a cherry-cough-syrup touch to the sip alongside brown spice, but it's fumbling a bit over flavor and texture.
