Merlot 2016

Merlot 2016

Our varietal Merlot is aged for 16 months in a combination of both neutral and new French oak barrels. Bright notes of cherry, strawberry and leather are intertwined with a soft aroma of wet iron. On the palate, black tea leaf, mocha, and vanilla flavors are smoothly delivered along with fine tannins. A delicate and well integrated oak influence is carried through the finish.
