Wine Description

(From 2013 Vintage) A richer, more full-bodied style Merlot with delicious fruit forward blackberry and black cherry fruit followed by lingering black tea and damp earth. Good acidity and more tannic structure balancing out the riper fruit.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The Merlot is dark garnet red in color. The nose is swarming with wonderful notes of light oak, shaved coconut, dried leaves, olive and tapenade. The palate is delicious with fruit forward blackberry and black cherry fruit followed by lingering black tea and damp earth. Due to the warm season, there is good acidity and more tannic structure that balances out the riper, more generous fruit. Definitely a richer, more full-bodied style Merlot. - Mark R.
