Winemaker's Notes

"Our Merlot truly captures the ripe, fruit forward nature of this vintage. Primary aromas of big cherry, raspberry and strawberry are complimented by underlying notes of mint and eucalyptus that this vineyard is famous for. On the palate, lush plums, cocoa, mint and vanilla are framed by an elegant toast laden finish. Five percent Cabernet Sauvignon from our Oakville Estate vineyard gives this Merlot just enough tannin to age gracefully for the next 4-6 years." -Winery

Expert Reviews
  • Robert Parker
    (From 2007 Vintage) "More promising is the 2007 Merlot, which reveals sweeter tannins, a more enticing velvety finish, and plenty of mocha, chocolate, and black cherry fruit characteristics. It should drink nicely for a decade."
