What a beautiful, expressive wine - the kind that invites you back for multiple tastes, with more revealed each time. Its aroma evokes violets, sweet spices and raspberry compote. There's a built-in deliciousness that speaks "essence of Merlot".
We have a small but highly esteemed block of Merlot on our property, one of our best kept secrets. A few times a decade, the wine from these grapes shines in a way that makes us take note. We employed all of our red wine making processes here, including choosing some seriously talented barrels of a year of aging. An extensive series of tastings from these barrels further enhanced the selection process.
