Tasting Notes
Our 2012 Merlot has a vibrant dark ruby color and shows off aromas of black currants, Russian olive and loam. Its gentle, soft silky tannins and very judicious use of oak, usher in flavors of cherry, raspberry, currants and plum mingled with earthy notes of graphite, loam and a hint of tar, layered with a delightful touch of cocoa.
