Winemaker Notes

The 2008 Merlot is scented with blueberry, spicy sandalwood, cinnamon, and leather. On the palate, it's rich and creamy with dark cherry, maple, cocoa, and a note of orange zest. Pair with roasted rack of lamb with herbed demi-glace, grilled steak with shallot/lemon butter, eggplant Parmesan, or caramelized fig tart with honey and bleu cheese.

Critical Acclaim

WE 87
Wine Enthusiast

Firm, hard and tight, this offers black cherry flavors with some peach-pit phenolics. It's sharp and edgy, definitely on the herbal side, with a hint of stem.
