Tulip Winery Just Merlot
The wine was aged in barrels for 6 to 8 months and controlled in many ways. The nose starts with earthy notes, eucalyptus, raspberry, roasted herb, nice spice, pepper, and cinnamon. The medium bodied wine has a lovely richness and roundness along with a nice attack of red and black fruit, currant, plum, black cherry, along with nice integrated tannin and spice. The finish is long and spicy, with more crushed and roasted herb, mineral, slate, and graphite.
