    Winemaker's Notes:

    An elegant Merlot that is sourced mostly from different vineyards on Howell Mountain and punctuated with some Cabernet Sauvignon from Stags Leap. This wine yields harmonious layers of complexity and plump, lush fruitiness. A classic Merlot.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good medium red. Seems a bit riper on the nose than the Keyes Vineyard merlot, offering dark plum, milk chocolate and graphite along with a lightly herbal character. Then sweeter and finer-grained in the mouth, with good mineral lift to the plum flavor. Not especially deep but easier to taste today than the Keyes example, thanks in part to suppler tannins.
