The Stimson Estate Cellars Merlot has a bright ruby-red to purple color.
On the nose it shows a lot of ripe fruit (cherries and plums), fine, slightly earthy spice notes with hints of oak, vanilla, butter, caramel and licorice.
The Stimson Estate Cellars Merlot tastes juicy on the palate, round and balanced, softly structured, with fresh cherry and berry fruit, in the final delicately spicy with soft toast and vanilla.
