A blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, the Reserve Merlot undergoes stainless steel fermentation and is aged for nearly two years in French and American oak. Rich and flavorful, the wine's bouquet and palate is layered with notes of spice, black cherry, currant and ripe plum. This Merlot's elegant presentation is accentuated by a persistent, complex finish.
