The ‘13 Broadside Merlot is so dark that only a speck of light gets through. The nose is fabulously deep, with big cassis aromas playing fast and loose with coffee, cocoa, licorice, sage and a puff of campfire smoke. Fruit flavors dominate the palate - blue and black berries, plums and black currants. There is a layer of holiday spice on a layer of chunky minerality wrapped in a lovely acidity and tied up with tannins that are almost as smooth as silk.

Very fruity nose. Raspberry and blackberry jam. Sweet ripe red fruits, sharp tannin and nice finish. Very good.

A very unique Merlot. Oaky, a little jammy, leather and vanilla.
