Select lots of grapes are chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and medium-bodied Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of plum, chocolate spice, dark berries, coffee, caramel, and cedar. A fleshy mouthfeel is followed by flavors of bright, upfront, red fruit, a structured mid-palate, and a firm backbone of ripe tannins. This wine has impressive length and a lasting, elegant finish.
The fruit forward, easy drinking qualities of our Merlot make it the perfect wine to pair with any red meat course, Italian entrees, and roasted or grilled fragrantly-spiced poultry dishes.
