    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep cherry red in color with a brick red hue. The bouquet is rich and complex with hints of violets, plums, a touch of spice and red cherries. The French oak is restrained and well integrated. Medium bodied with a strong mid palate of rich red berry and savory black olive notes. The texture is soft with integrated smoky vanilla French oak, finishing with a refined silky smooth tannin structure.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Gryphon Merlot spent 18 months in 35% new French oak. Medium crimson-colored, it delivers aromas of cigar box, cherry, rose petal, and cassis. Soft and easy-going on the palate, this friendly wine has no hard edges. Drink it over the next 4 years.
