Winemaker's Notes

This is a smooth, velvety Merlot dripping with ripe blueberry and blackberry fruit, all at a very reasonable price! Try a bottle and see for yourself why this California winery has received so many great accolades.

Our Vintage 1999 Estate Grown Merlot displays intense aromatics of blueberries, red berries, black fruits, and roasted nuts along with toasted oak.
