According to Wine Enthusiast - Select lots of grapes were chosen from our vineyards in Sonoma County to create this beautifully-balanced and full-bodied 2009 Merlot. This is a velvety wine with a complex nose of cinnamon candy, cherry cola, blackberry preserves, and exotic spices. A juicy, slightly viscous and rich mouthfeel is followed by notes of bittersweet chocolate, mocha and tobacco. This wine has full, generous tannins that coat the palate, impressive length and lasting acidity.
Winemaker's Notes - This 2009 Merlot from our estate-owned vineyards in Sonoma County, is a rich, complex wine with luscious cherry aromas and accents of spice, chocolate and caramel that lingers on the silky finish. Beautifully balanced, this wine can be enjoyed with roasted meat, chicken and pasta dishes.
