2013 Crossroads Milestone Series Merlot



Hailing from Hawkes Bay, this is quite a rich, fuller style of Merlot that shows lots of ripe plums and subtle florals, with whiffs of toasty oak and a sprinkle of dried herbs. The palate is rich, fleshy and fine, with a nice juicy core of dark fruits and plums, fine and slightly drying tannins, and a decent, smooth finish. Great with some spare ribs!
