2007 Damjanić «Merlot» – Merlot

Ruby red with amber reflections. Cherries in spirit, plum marmelade and cloves in the nose with intense green herbal notes typical for Merlot in this region. In the mouth it is very warm, flavors of ripe fruit are intense, but a certain lack of acids makes it is too round so it looses a bit of structure and excitement. Tannins are still too aggressive and leave slightly bitter finish. This drawback could pass unnoticed if the wine is paired with meat dishes that possess certain sweetness – lamb on a spit, veal shin roast or boiled meat.
