Winemaker's Notes

A better Merlot for the price would be hard to find. Elegant and complex, with aromas of red plum, loganberry and red currant. Silky tannins balance the lively plum and berry flavors on the palate. The wine finishes with lingering toast in the background. The blend is 84% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc.
