Winemaker's Notes

Heron Merlot offers aromas of lush, ripe cassis and raspberry, accentuated by chocolate overtones. On the palate the wine is rich and supple, with layers of concentrated black cherry, currant, mocha and plum flavors. This medium-bodied Merlot is finely structures and well-balanced with a long smooth finish.

A blend of one and two year old French Oak barrels with medium toast to balance the fruit, adding layers of complexity and depth. The result is a rich wine with well-integrated tannins and harmonious flavors.
