    Winemaker's Notes:

    Cakebread Cellars Merlot is dark garnet in color, reflecting its rich fruit character. Subtle aromas of blackberries, black tea leaves, dried herbs and vanillin are followed on the palate by fresh plum and cherry flavors offset by notes of black pepper and cassis, carrying into a touch of French oak on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Cakebread's latest is a well-made Merlot that exhibits the suppleness and rich, black-cherry fruit that marks the grape at its polished best. Its nicely measured complement of sweet oak and its subtle accents of spice lend it a real sense of sophistication, and, if admittedly still a bit bound up by grippy tannins at the end, there is simply no question that great things lie ahead for those willing to wait for another few years.
