The ADS Merlot from Alvi's Drift displays the beautiful unison of fruit, oak and tannin in harmonious balance. A perfumed bouquet is highlighted by interesting aromas of roasted tobacco that make way for a soft, juicy palate, laden with full-ripe fruit characters. Prominent notes of cherry, plum and decadent dark chocolate display their alluring charm on the palate, performing with beautiful intensity within in a well-structured tannic backbone. This is a wonderful wine and will only become more exciting as it ages. Serve the ADS Merlot with roasted duck, venison and red meat dishes.
