The Forrester easy-drinking, Reserve-level Merlot. Supremely quaffable and likeable. 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc.
Hand harvested in individual parcels and selected for quality to get the ripest possible, balanced Merlot from the best soils, influenced by the cool SE wind during the ripening season.
The wine was matured in selected French oak barrels for 12 months and blended with a small fraction of Cabernet Franc for structure and complexity prior to bottling.
Black fruit flavoirs all the way. Hints of cherries and mint with meat-spice and smoky undertones. Softly rounded and accessible wine with balanced tannins for early drinking.
