Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 Rhinefarm Merlot offers aromas and flavors of red plum, cranberry, pomegranate and dusty, dried sage. The smooth entry and broad flavors on the palate are framed by an elegant structure and bright acidity that carries the flavors through a long, lingering finish. Delicious upon release, this Merlot will benefit from five years of cellaring and continue to age gracefully for 10 to 12 years.
