Winemaker's Notes

(From 2010 Vintage) Dark crimson in color, this 2013 displays distinctive aromas of bergamot tea along with cassis, black cherry, and mocha. More of a ripe style, this Merlot has a seductive palate filled with notes of blackberry, forest floor and dried herbs coupled with dust and minerality. Medium bodied, this is a very elegant and delicious Merlot that is approachable now, but will improve over the next two years. - Mark R. Lyon, Winemaker

    sleek and focused, supple current and spicy sage flavors that finish with well balanced tannins.
