Eikendal Merlot 2018

Eikendal Merlot 2018

The Eikendal Merlot 2018 has an attractive nose that reminds one of forest floor, violets, plums, black berries, cherries and peppery spices. On the palate the wine and full and rounded, with soft tannins and a rich taste of black berries and plums. The elegant finish is long and pleasant.

Pair with Crispy Duck, Cassoulet, Spaghetti Puttanesca.
