Winemaker's Notes:

Rich with aromas of vanilla, orange spice and red licorice, followed by subtle hints of sandalwood, bright cherries, thyme and herbs de Provence. This medium-bodied Merlot is soft and plush, with notes of sweet oak, black tea, black pepper and briary fruits. The fine tannins are nicely integrated into the wine, making it approachable upon release.

About Lyeth Winery:

Established by Chip Lyeth in 1981, Lyeth was one of the first wineries in California to pursue the unique complexity and composition achieved by the marriage of Cabernet Sauvignon with the other major Bordeaux varieties, now known as the Meritage style. The term "Meritage" (pronouced like "heritage") is a combination of the words "merit" and "heritage".

Lyeth became a founding member of the Meritage Association in 1988, which created the Meritage concept as a means of identifying blends produced in the Bordeaux style. Today it continues the tradition of blending family and tradition in its wines, winning praise from critics and consumers worldwide.
