2012 Irony Merlot

Dark in color with a mild nose. On the mid palate the wine displays dark cherry notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice firm dry tannins with the dark cherries living on. This to my tastes is more cab than Merlot but a nice wine none the less. I would give it an 88 or so. We paired it with meat ravioli in red sauce and it went well and held it’s own.
