The John X Merriman is a powerful wine that rewards aging.

In its youth the wine is worth decanting and expresses cassis, black currant and dark fruits complemented with cigar tobacco and sour cherrynotes.

As the wine ages and its fine grained tannins soften a softer more savoury palate develops revealing wonderful drinkabilityand tertiary complexity.
