Winemaker's Notes

Deep garnet in color with delightful aromas of ripe plums, fresh raspberries, summer berries and rose tea. The generous aromas are echoed in the palate, which is supple and well structured with great length of flavors. The signature style of Blackstone is an "integrated" Merlot with rich fruit; surrounded by elegant creaminess, supple oak flavors and firm tannins. Blackstone Merlot is friendly, flavorful and balanced, encouraging the marriage between food and wine.

Alcohol: 13.0% by volume
