Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color, this Merlot displays aromas of black cherry, brown spice, and light toasty oak. In the mouth, the wine has a rich texture with concentrated blackberry fruit and notes of mocha.

Vineyard Notes

The 2016 growing season was off to a great start with winter and spring rains, no frost events, and an earlier-than-normal bud break. Warm, sunny days followed during fruit set, resulting in even cluster development. A classic ripening season consisting of cool night and morning temperatures with moderate daytime temperatures that heated up in August allowed for mature flavor and tannin development and brought the fruit to optimum Brix levels.

Food Pairings

This rich, balanced Merlot pairs nicely with a wide range of foods, including roast chicken and pork, or pasta.
