Winemaker's Notes:

This Merlot has fragrant aromas of cherry, pomegranate, dark, rich fruit and toasty vanilla oak. Red fruit wraps the palate with a lush and gentle touch. Luxurious sweet berry flavors fill out this wine from beginning to end. Medium full-bodied flavors of berry and cherry with culminate in a long, bright fruit finish.

Alcohol: 13.5% by volume
