The ‘14 Merlot has been aged in thirty-three percent new French and American oak barrels for eighteen months. The resulting wine shows intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, and cassis. Complex nuances of cocoa and coffee bean emerge as the wine opens up. This is a “big” Merlot that will age for many years to come.

Richly textured, round and supple, this is a simple merlot with generous fruit that’s ripe but not raisined. It finishes firm, with a dark berry perfume. For a steak.
