Carneros is a special, if not magical, place for Merlot. A place where the grapes can hang deep into October, developing additional layers of ripeness without losing the freshness and acidity that keeps wine moving on the palate.
Exotic dark fruits predominate on the nose with blackberry and boysenberry along with layers of spice and dark chocolate. The palate features beautiful fruit sweetness, with notes of saddle leather, cassis, and black tea. This is perhaps our finest Merlot to date from an outstanding vintage.
