Dark fruit dominates the nose. One of our darkest red wines, flavors of plum, blackberry jam, clove, cedar, and menthol are on nose. On the palate, a smooth finish, framed by well-integrated tannins, and bright acidity.
Our Estate Merlot comes from head-trained vines planted in 1986, on a gentle north facing slope. These old vines produce balanced, elegant merlot, with ample concentration and tremendous depth.
After a cool fermentation in stainless steel, the 2020 Merlot was aged for 24 months in French oak.
