Winemaker's Notes:

This is a big Merlot that delivers ripe aromas and flavors laced with cherries, tobacco and raspberries. The palate is dense and concentrated and the silky tannins help extend the finish for what feels like minutes. If you enjoy muscular Merlots, this is definitely right up your alley.
