Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) The warm 1998 vintage is beautifully reflected in this merlot. The wine shows extraordinary definition and focus for such a young wine. The ability to blend with such incredible components has allowed us to produce a spectacular wine with deep color, ripe bing cherry and concentrated cassis, chocolate and mocha. Vanilla spice from new barrels makes for a surprisingly complex red wine. The finish is long and generous. This wine may be consumed now, but it will improve significantly with bottle age...
