Winemaker notes

All grapes are gently de-stemmed before cold-soaking for two days to extract optimal color and flavor. The fruit is fermented in separate lots, allowing each lot to be individually and distinctly crafted before being aged in French oak barrels, 25% new. The wines are kept 16 months in barrel before final blending and bottling.

Appellation: Sonoma County

Tasting notes

This Merlot shows off deep, rich color and structure. Layers of aromas and flavors of cassis, plum, dried currant, and savory spices introduce a long, silky finish in this classic wine.
