Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of bing cherry and violets are followed by a full, velvety palate of opulent black cherry, black plum and berry flavors, with notes of mocha, fresh tobacco leaf and chai spices. Round tannins add weight and a lush texture and lead to a lingering, creamy finish. Delicious upon release, this Merlot will benefit from five years of cellaring from vintage and continue to age gracefully for at least ten years.
