Beautiful dark color. The warm 2009 vintage produced
a very fine and generous Merlot. It is already drinking
gorgeously. The wine has a stunning bouquet of berries,
fresh blooming flowers, cedar shavings, and mocha. On the
palate, it is incredibly long, lush, and soft, with pure fruit and
melted caramel. This is a truly hedonistic Merlot and a fine
example of why I love making this varietal.
