ELEMENTS BY ARTESA MERLOT- Red raspberry and rose petal aromas are both prominent in the nose of this Merlot. This Merlot shows a juicy, yet balanced mid-palate which is also slightly austere in some ways. Lots of red and black cherry are on display throughout, along with bits of rhubarb. The finish shows off leather, sour cherry and copious spice elements in the form of clove, nutmeg and pepper. This wine has excellent structure and good acidity.
