Winemaker's Notes

83% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, sourced primarily from the esteemed old blocks of Seven Hills Vineyard.

A ripe, food-friendly Merlot exhibitng a broad array of flavors and aromas - toffee, violets, herb and vanilla accent ripe red and black fruit, with generous depth and length.

Critical Acclaim

"The Bordeaux-styled wines begin with the 2003 Merlot "Seven Hills Vineyard." Composed of 83% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Franc and aged in 35% new French oak, this dark ruby-colored wine emits a complex bouquet of spice box, menthol, cassis, and cherry. Velvety on the palate, it delivers oodles of sweet fruit, superior depth, and outstanding length. This hedonistic Merlot can be enjoyed now through 2020. "
