Wine Description

(2003 Vintage) Medium dark ruby-violet in color, our 2003 Merlot reveals a rich bouquet of dark black cherries, licorice and subtle aromas of cinnamon and vanilla from the oak. Medium-bodied texture and lush flavors are beautifully framed by supple tannins, adding a pleasing freshness in the finish. A delicious wine with marinated grilled pork tenderloin or fine semi-hard cheeses like Fontina d'Aosta and Morbier.
