Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) This very dark purple entry level Merlot opens with a boysenberry bouquet with a hint of blackberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe black cherry with some integrated oak and notes of blackberry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are a bit sticky.

Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) For our Red Rock Winery Reserve Merlot, we select grapes that offer red and black jammy flavors, while providing balance and finesse to the wine. This Merlot opens with aromas of caramelized sugar and vanilla, which is balanced with jammy berry flavors. Dark fruit flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and black currant overwhelm the palate, creating a well-rounded structure. In the winery, we take great care to achieve a delicate harmony between fruit and hints of oak, balancing body with flavor.
