Dark, middle-aged. Beautiful stereo-typical Merlot color and opacity.
Deep cherry oak
Smooth cherry plum, hint of toasted oak
Very smooth, dry but not tannic
KISS...Keep It Simple Stupid. Michigan Reds are not known for lasting a long time, at the time of this review this wine is four years old. A four-year-old Michigan wine is generally reaching its peak or has already started to decline. With this wine not having a large tannic smell, taste or finish on it I don’t believe it has reached its peak yet, it’s still embodies a beautifully crafted Merlot. The winery like I said above, embody the statement of KISS. The color and opacity of the wine are near perfection. They didn't try to make a top-shelf Merlot. Their crop was already first class, all they had to do was let it age. Brys Estate Merlot is a smooth but full body Merlot with typical cherry and plum taste, strong cherry flavor all the way through the tasting process. If you get up to Traverse City in Michigan, this is probably the first winery you should visit.
