    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color is a deep, rich ruby-garnet. With forward spicy sweet oak, there are layers of flavor composed of black cherry, raspberry, dark plum, dark chocolate and spices such as cinnamon, clove and vanilla. The entry and finish are very smooth with integrated fruit resembling black cherry and Santa Rosa plum. The velvety texture coupled with the richness of flavor provides a profile that delivers from initial sip, one that continues on the palate for a very long finish... enjoy.

    Blend: 80.2% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.2% Petit Verdot and 0.6% Syrah

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a lovely, elegant Merlot for drinking now and over the next several years. It's dry and smooth, with dusty tannins framing cherry, red currant, herb, olive and cedar flavors. Give it a brief decanting to let the air mellow it.
