    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby red in color with a bright hue. The bouquet is rich and complex with hints of violets, plums, a touch of spice and savory fruitcake elements. The French oak is restrained and well integrated. Medium-bodied with a strong mid palate of mulberry and savory forest underbrush flavors. The texture is soft with integrated smoky vanilla French oak, finishing with a refined smooth tannin structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright red. Spicy red berries, rose and herbs on the nose. Light-bodied, refreshingly bitter strawberry and cherry flavors are silky and precise in a pinot-like way, with a hint of mint on the back half. A fairly refined merlot that finishes with gentle sweetness and very good smoky persistence. I wish that more New World merlots had this wine's sweetness and light touch.
