Winemaker's Notes

This ruby colored release showcases the Merlot qualities at its best. Blackberry and cedar combine to provide the primary flavors with a light touch of vanilla on a long finish. The classic fruit and French Oak cooperage make this a rich complex wine that will benefit from cellar time.

Food and Wine Pairing: Try this with veal, lamb or roast. A good companion to pate' and smoked salmon. Enjoy a glass in the late afternoon with a slice of Brie or strong Cheddar. Like Cabernet, this is a good wine to have with chocolate.

Alcohol: 13.1%
