The 2005 Merlot crop from the London ranch was
harvested in late September and early October. The vintage is known for the excellent structure and age ability of its wines along with intense ripe flavors. The juice was fermented in stainless steel and then aged in French and American oak barrels for 20 months.
The rich fruit flavors found in this Merlot complement a wide range of dishes, including braised beef, rich stews and pastas.
