This popular wine is made with 100% Estate-Grown fruit. The 2016 vintage was sunny and warm, with a long, ideal fall. The Merlot was beautifully ripe by early October, and was hand harvested on October 18th of 2016.
This wine is a very deep ruby, almost opaque, wine. The color is an indication of the richness and concentration of the wine. The expressive nose is complex and layered with inviting aromas of fruit. Intense aromatics of black cherries, blueberries and plums are evident. Pronounced mouthfeel, as the velvety tannins and lively acidity balance the flavor profile. This wine is very much about the exceptional texture and concentration that great Merlot is famous for. A long, complicated finish completes the tasting experience, as this elegant wine continues to express itself.
