This wine's exceptional character comes from choice Central Coast grapes, primarily from Monterey County, a region
that provides the temperate climate, cool breezes and moist alluvial soils that Merlot loves.
This wine displays classic Merlot attributes: bright ripe black cherry and plum aromas with subtle notes of spice
and chocolate; soft, juicy, balanced flavors; a smooth, supple texture with well-rounded tannins and bright acidity.
Enjoy this wine with wild mushroom pizza, spaghetti Bolognese, Cornish game hens, grilled
beef or lamb shanks.
