Winemaker's Notes

Winemakers Notes: I really love this wine. Soft, supple, and complex. There is a certain elegance to this wine that fits my vision of the perfect Merlot: Pretty and seductive with a decidedly spicy nose of black cherry, cassis and cedar.

Good seam of acidity paired with soft tannins make this a wonderful wine for game fowl such as pheasant or duck. My preference would be Rock Cornish Game Hen...yum!
