Canto Merlot 2016

Canto Merlot 2016

The nose shows notes of oak, violets, plums and cherry. It has a subtle taste of black berries, plums and a deep earthy taste. Beautiful soft tannins combine with the rich ripe fruit flavours ending in a wine with great balance and elegance. Abundant rich flavours of plum and black cherry give way to a deeper liquorice note. With a good structure, the wine is medium/full bodied with juicy fruit, wonderful texture, fine grained tannins and a silky finish.
