Winemaker's Notes

Our 2013 Merlot is derived from an amazing vintage. The wonderful weather allowed the grapes to hang on the line to reach full maturity. This helped to create a wine of richness and depth. This is no wimpy Merlot - we make this wine to please even the finickiest of Cab drinkers. Look for aromas and flavors of black cherry, blueberry, and blackberry all tied together with just a kiss of toasty vanilla. This is made to be enjoyed on a cool evening with good friends.
