Delectus Winery 2008 Merlot

Bright fruit, guava peel, and candied cherries greet your nose at first. This intriguingly sweet and effervescent wine transforms itself from an innocent sweetness filled with vanilla, caramel and butterscotch to layers of earthiness and oak. Hints of cola tickle your throat as the flavors linger on your palate.
