Arrowleaf Cellars First Crush Red

A blend of 66% Pinot Noir with 30% Merlot and 4% Zweigelt added for structureand color. Arrowleaf Cellars like using Pinot Noir as a base for this blend because it offers ripe fruit flavour and good texture on the mid-palate. Whereas Pinot Noir tends to be more modest in color and tannin, Merlot is decidedly more robust, offering greater structure and adding nuances of spice and pepper. Cherry, plum and raspberry aromas with vanilla and lightly spicy undertones. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate with sweet fruit flavours lingering on the finish.
