    Winemaker's Notes:

    Our Merlot's soft yet elegant structure is created in the vineyard through low yields, abundant sun exposure, canopy management and hang time. The wine presents a balance and elegance between ripe Merlot fruit and site-specific earthiness. Aromas of summer brush, huckleberry, eucalyptus and a slight smokiness are matched on the palate with violets, blueberry fruit, milk chocolate and moist earth.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An exquisite Merlot that really impresses for balance and complexity, and not just its ability to ripen grapes, which anyone can do. Shows deep flavors of cherry purée, mocha, cedar and Asian spices, wrapped into finely ground, sweet tannins. A rewarding red wine for drinking now with upscale fare.
