Winemaker's Notes:

This Merlot provides the rich, deep flavors of fine red Bordeaux grapes without the heavy tannins of young Cabernets. Our Alexander and Dry Creek Valley vineyards produce superior Merlot grapes for a soft, velvety wine with rich concentrated fruit and supple tannins. An outstanding red dinner wine.
