elegant oak characters.
The 2009 Merlot is hand-harvested fruit from
our Veramonte Estate vineyard hillside
plantings in Casablanca. We implement
aggressive canopy management, that results in
ripe and polished fruit with a long finish.
"Fresh and direct, with a beam of damson plum, cherry and light toasty vanilla. Shows nice focus on the finish. Drink now. 35,000 cases made."
"Medium purple color; earth notes, dark fruit aromas; savory fruit, ripe, drink now – 5 years"
