This Merlot has a deep, rich, ruby color. Warm cherry aromas are accented with notes of mocha, red licorice, sage and toffee. Soft, round tannins make this wine easy to drink with flavors of black cherries and plums balanced with caramel and toffee from the oak.

Other text
After fermentation and initial racking, the wine was aged an average of nine months in a combination of new to three-year-old French (45%) and American (55%) oak barrels. The balance of new and used barrels allows the winemaker to create fuller body and richness while keeping the oak in balance with the wineís character. to enjoy our wines
