2015 The Descent Valle Central Merlot

This lush, rich red is perfect for your descent into relaxation. Red-violet in color, the vibrant wine fills the glass with aromas of cherry, chocolate and sweet spices. The inviting bouquet leads to a similar palate of cherry and plum layered over hints of mocha and spice. This medium-bodied wine finishes smoothly and satisfyingly. Enjoy it on its own or with your favorite Asian-inspired dishes.
