Wine Description

(From 2011 Vintage) Round and packed with violet, black currant, cherry, mineral and spice flavors, this red is polished, given support by dense tannins. The spice and toast accents linger on the extended aftertaste.

Winemaker's Notes

Medium ruby color, aromas of black cherry, anise, dark chocolate and red plums; well balanced with a touch of eathiness in the finish.

    "Textbook Merlot, with aromas of black olives, minerals and blueberries. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, long finish of ripe fruit, raspberries and dark chocolate. The real thing. Best after 2006. 500 cases made."
