2008 Elephant Mountain Merlot THE TUSK

A sensational, dense, dark, purple-red this beauty has aromas of black fruit, unsweetened chocolate and violets. The plush velvety mouth feel is supported by rich, supple tannins. The palate is a dynamic array of dark-toned flavors: blackberry, black plum, anis and Bing cherry. This wine is so delicious now it is hard to keep from pulling the cork but it will improve and cellar easily for 20 yrs+
