Red Diamond Merlot, 2014
Red Diamond Merlot is a polished wine that opens with a beautiful, softly-spiced black cherry, berry and ripe plum aromas on the nose with a toasty oak background. Sweet fruit on the palate is complemented by medium-bodied, but firm tannins, with a nice smooth finish.
This soft and versatile Merlot goes very well with foods containing pork, or steaks, Nyama Choma and vegetarian dishes. It drinks well alone. Enjoy it with friends at a party or an evening night out.
