Frei Brothers Reserve Merlot Dry Creek Valley

Wine Details





Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Our 2010 Dry Creek Valley Merlot captures the rich, ripe flavors of the Dry Creek Valley terroir. Aromas and flavors of red licorice, Satsuma plums, red fruit jam and blackberry meld with hints of toasted oak, milk chocolate and medium-roasted coffee. This medium-bodied wine delivers excellent structure and an elegant finish.

    Perhaps I let this age too long, but at 4 years this wine was overpoweringly dry and tannic!
