The Cabernet Merlot D.O. by Erasmo Organic Winery is presented in a cherry red with violet reflections and an intense and elegant bouquet. This blends the aromas of juicy red berries with balsamic and earthy aromas, as well as a fine vanilla note.
This organic wine is present on the palate with a very fine structure, velvety and full tannins and with a lively acidity. A fine wine, which is excellently balanced.
