The 2017 Toad Hollow Merlot begins with a pleasing aroma of ripe plum and blackberry plus plenty of vanilla.
Taking a sip reveals a smooth, oaky Merlot with plenty of juicy, concentrated dark fruit. With good structure this is a super drinkable, all-around wine.
It ends dry with some lingering oaky spice, vanilla and chocolate under the lasting fruit. This is downright tasty!
