Deep, seductive aromas of tightly woven currant and cedar mingle with dusty tannins. Complex and layered, the Mercantile offers up juicy dark mixed berries, cigar box, Valrhona dark chocolate and a violet essence. Mocha and a touch of anise enhance the flavors as they appear in the finish.
Its solid structure may require the wine to be decanted or open at least an hour before serving. Or, cellar this robust beauty for a few more years, allowing the firm tannin to mature and further integrate into the wine.
Think prime rib, a bison New York steak or a rack of ribs when pairing this wine.
