Frost during the 2008 growing season resulted in valley floor fruit harvested with low yields and small berries. This preserved a youthful, fresh character in the finished wine that is immediately apparent in its soft texture and rounded tannins.
This Merlot opens with aromas of fresh cranberry, black pepper and rosehips. The palate reveals bright flavors of strawberry and pomegranate with
underlying clove and other subtle brown spices. Fresh and fruity, this is an incredibly approachable wine.
