Winemaker's Notes

Bright, high-tone perfumy scents of spice, sherry, vanilla, and plums lend elegance to deep, ripe fruit notes with hints of dark chocolate that are typical of this grape variety. The 2006 Vintners Blend Merlot is fresh and uplifting, rich without being heavy, and perfectly balanced with a cherry-spice finish and the ideal amount of astringency. Three to five years will add depth and harmony to the wine. This race Merlot will be a lovely accompaniment to roasted and grilled red meats, or a fabulous partner for a good roast chicken with herbs and garlic.
