Winemaker's Notes

Firm and focused on the palate this is one big Merlot. The flavors are almost piercing in their intensity with loads of classic dark cherry and ripe berry that lingers and becomes more intriguing in the mouth with the rich tannins.

"Winemaker Ron Coleman selected fruit from seven vineyards to compose a wine of exceptional beauty. Simultaneously well built and willowy, its flavors lead with succulent red plum, mocha and spice. Its amazing texture engages the palate while dancing above it. Savor this with something simple, like slow-roasted pork."
