    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine is a deep, youthful purple color with a ruby rim. It has a typical Merlot nose with juicy plum and mulberry fruit, lifted spiciness and hints of dark chocolate and graphite. The palate offers generous, ripe, pure Merlot fruit with refreshing acidity, structured yet silky tannins and pronounced length and minerality. Serve the wine with red meats, game and strong cheese.

    Blend: 86% Merlot and 14% Cabernet Franc

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright, deep red. Sexy aromas of black plum, currant, licorice, spices and menthol. Juicy and intense but youthfully tight, with a leafy, savory quality currently dominating the middle palate. Firmly structured, classically dry merlot, finishing with strong dusty tannins. This needs a good five years in the bottle to unwind.
