Giant Steps Merlot 2016


Merlot done right. Sadly, this variety isn't treated with the respect it deserves at times. Often boring and one dimensional to some, even an after thought, a little bit of effort goes a long way.



Purple and red fruit is served with two hands. Plums aromas with a lick of mulberry.
Medium bodied, this delicious example sways and swoons through the mouth. A touch of dark chocolate and olive wades through before acid has a red apple like crunch. Plenty of appeal, finishing long with a brick dust tannin. Satisfaction here.

Drink now to five years.
