All that is delicious about Merlot is present in the 2017 Counterpart. It has focused aromas of raspberries, currants, tobacco, black pepper, flowers and thyme -all framed by toasty oak nuances. For a Merlot dominant wine, Counterpart is bold and structured. (2/3 Merlot 1/3 Cabernet) This wine has youthful flavors of chocolate cherries, currants, and graphite and will outweigh many Cabernets: Yet it still has that plush and layered feel that fine Merlots can give you.
