*JAQK Black Clover Merlot
JAQK Cellars Black Clover Merlot, Napa Valley, USA
JAQK's 'Black Clover' Merlot has been referred to as a 'Cab Lovers Merlot' with its vibrant palate and rich, full texture. Aromas of raspberry, black currants, sassafras, dark chocolate and tobacco beautifully balance the flavors of black currants and cherry. Soft, mouth-coating tannins lead into a long, lingering finish. The name Black Clover is a nod to the playing cards suit, and it also refers to Irish lore and the incredible luck bestowed upon anyone fortunate enough to find a four-leaf clover. Similar to Cabernet Sauvignon but with less tannin and fruit. Delivers earlier maturing wines. Often blended with Cabernet; on its own may soften with age, though fruit flavors may fade.
DetailsIrish lore tells of incredible luck being bestowed upon anyone fortunate enough to find a four-leaf clover. Ten thousand times more rare than the three-leafed norm, spotting one is an indication of both luck and a keen eye. It just so happens that these two attributes can bring great fortunes at the card table, turning a peasant (the class the suit originally symbolized) into royalty. Unfortunately for those already possessing great riches, the reverse is also true. So, caution, friend. We celebrate the ability of a man to improve his lot in life with our Black Clover Merlot.
