Paradigm Winery, Estate Bottled Merlot
Estate Bottled Merlot, Oakville, California, 2017 (750 ml)
Ruby red color with aromas of red plums and cherry fruit layered with hints of toasty French Oak. Some dried spices in the nose as well, cardamom and five spice. Very soft and supple across the palate with red fruit character dominating the flavor profile. Barely there silky tannins add structure and texture without heaviness. Balance and length are good with persistent flavors lasting several minutes.
