    Winemaker's Notes:

    Introduced by its shimmering ruby color, our 2007 Merlot opens with enticingly fresh, vivid aromas of black cherry and red plum fruit, perfectly complemented by fragrant rose hips tea, sweet oak and light herbal tones. In the mouth, the flavors are startlingly rich, creamy and luscious, with concentrated red cherry and plum skin fruitiness invigorated by seeped-tea spice tones and tangy acidity. Although Merlot is stereotyped as a drink-me-now red, the deep fruit and superb structure of this rendition argue for one to three years of aging. Those who can't wait are advised to uncork this beauty with herb-roasted chicken, black-olive pizza or Merlot-marinated game hen.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Made with 15% Cabernet Franc, which adds a welcome cherry tart richness to the earthy blackberries and herbs, this Merlot is priced well for an elegant restaurant wine. It’s dry and crisp and smooth, and so easy to drink with a fine steak.
