World class Merlot at an extremely reasonable price. Sourced from fruit grown in the Mayacamas Mountains, this rich, densely pigmented wine exudes fruit aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, and black raspberry. Aged in only French cooperage, this Merlot has a distinctive vanilla and chocolate aromatic profile as the result of 23 months of barrel contact.
"Tries, with considerable success, to advance the argument that Sonoma is Merlot's natural home. A ripe, rich, plummy wine, with terrific fruit and superb tannins, easy enough to drink tonight or age a few years. It's so good, you can't help but reach for another glass."
