Tasting Notes

Color: deep red with black hues

Aroma: bright forward cherry and currant, toasty oak, caramel, clove, vanilla, and bay leaf

Taste: focused entry leads to a round, fleshy mid-palate with moderate acidity. The wine displays great richness, while not being heavy. The finish is moderately long, accented by red fruit and barrel notes.

Vineyard Notes

We love Merlot planted in the southern part of the Napa Valley, and in particular from around the town of Napa and Carneros, for its robust fruit flavors and added structure.
