Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of toast and cloves are accented with hints of briar and dried orange peel. On the palate this Merlot has substantial tannins leading to a long finish of clove and raspberry.

The 2000 harvest was exceptional for both quality and quantity. Cool temperatures early in the season ultimately led to a warm, dry and stable growing season in 2000. A cold front in late-September slowed the ripening process and allowed grapes extended time on the vine to develop intense flavors.

Food Pairings; Foods: lamb, pasta, beef, fowl Herbs: basil, oregano, rosemary
