Our 2014 Claar Merlot has a dark color of boysenberry with a deep tone of purple plum. The nose contains dark spices of clove and anise with hints of Cynar amaro. Dark cherry and plum aromas are enveloped by a fragrance of confection and liquor. The palate is smooth and round with ash-like tannins melting away on the tongue. The finish is persistent with soft yet dark, candied black fruit flavor.
