Castoro Cellars Merlot 2016
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|
Well rounded aromas of red cherry, wood smoke, cowboy leather and earth make for a very accessible entry to the nose of this affordably priced wine. There is a strong snap to the palate and an impressively chalky grip, offering flavors of dark cherry, cranberry and, on the finish, some vanilla.
Dark ruby. Dark berries, cherry and a hint of vanilla on the spice-accented nose. Pliant blackberry and cherry compote flavors show good depth and no rough edges. Supple and broad on the finish, which features even tannins and lingering notes of bitter cherry and licorice.
