The Merlot for this wine comes from several vineyard blocks on our estate, each with a unique soil structure, trellising style and microclimate. It is this diversity that allows us to create a more compelling final blend. Vibrant aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, violet and licorice lead into notes of spicy vanilla and allspice for a lingering finish.

Wine EnthusiastDark berry and cherry aromas meet with touches of pasilla chile, peppercorn and sandalwood on the distinctive nose of this bottling from one of the region's first estate wineries. The palate is smooth, with dried berry, juniper, dark chocolate and more chile pepper greenness, which fits nicely into the overall picture.
