Winemaker's Notes

A dark, yet brilliant, ruby color augurs pleasure for the other senses. Halfway to the glass, the olfactory sense meets fennel-laced plums and vanilla cassis, while aromas of violets and bay leaves vie for attention.

A tipping of the glass reinforces these flavors on the palate and wraps them in the plush texture that makes Merlot so appealing. A refreshing snap and ripe, polished tannins work together to provide structure and balance following through to a never-ending finish.

Merlot is a great companion to food. Its bright red fruit flavors and semi-soft tannin structure make it eminently quaffable with many of the same foods that pair well with Pinot Noir. Duck is a prime example.
