"Huge flavors up front in the Gundlach Bundschu Merlot 2013 reveal nuanced layers that will entice and please all who love great red wine. The lush nose leads with purple and blue fruits, elegant floral notes, and dark spice. A well-balanced blend of young tannins and lively acidity ensconce flavors of plum, black cherries, raspberries, fresh herbs, and chocolate that resonate through the ever-lingering finish. This sermon for your senses will gratify you now but has the ageability to benefit from an additional seven years from vintage and will continue to develop at least 12-15."

Taste SummaryBlueberry, Blackberry, Floral, Plum, Raspberry
