The long growing season of 1999 delivered grapes from our Clarksburg vineyards full of ripeness and rich in development. The resulting wine is our most distinctive and complex Merlot yet! Aromas of ripe cherries and plums framed in spicy oak compliment this perfectly balanced Merlot. On the palate the abundant fruit is beautifully integrated with the soft, yet ample tannins. Enjoy this wine with a wide range of meals: from pasta with a light red sauce to hearty meat dishes. Pair with grilled lamb with roasted garlic and wild mushrooms or gruyere cheese.
