Dark ruby color, our Merlot expresses rich dark fruit of blackberry, dark cherry, with a spice complexity of black pepper, sage and earth. The integrated oak component expresses cinnamon, clove and aromatic cedar. The entry and finish on the palate are very smooth, with integrated fruit resembling black cherry. This wine has a good overall balance of fruit, body, resolved tannin and balanced acidity. The depth of fruit coupled with the richness of flavor provides a profile that delivers from the initial sip, and continues on the palate for a very long finish. Enjoy!
The 2014 Merlot is 78.8% Merlot, 8.4% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc aged 15 months in neutral oak. Spicy notes in the fragrance along with hints of coffee bean, chocolate, and red and black cherries jump from the glass of this round, lush, easygoing style of Merlot, which is meant to be drunk over the next 10 years or so.
