The 2005 growing season was long and cool, allowing the grapes to hang on the vine
and mature longer. As a result, this Merlot exhibits exceptional concentration
and a beautiful, lengthy finish. To enrich the color, small amounts of Syrah and Petite Sirah are blended in. Then, the wine is aged in small French oak barrels,
which lend lovely notes of sweet vanilla to this elegant, full-bodied Merlot.
