This wine has aromas of black plums, dark cherries and a touch of oak with flavors of plums, dark berries, toasty oak and vanilla spice. In the mouth, it has an elegant and restrained style with nice structure and balance, soft tannins and a long finish.
Merlot is one of our most distinctive expressions, thanks to the nuances that vintner Dave Koball has discovered in our vineyards. The heritage of Bordeaux can be experienced in this blend, with added touches of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Carignane. The wine was aged for seven months using a combination of French and American oak of which 45% was new.
