Our 2011 Merlot is rich, round, and intricately layered. An earthy bouquet of cherry and wild berries dance on the nose of this wine, backed by a floral summer breeze. Hints of violets, roasted coffee, spices and mineral weave through the palate. This wine is elegant with a firmly sculpted framework of acid and polished tannins which evoke a long and harmonious finish.

Here is a young, tight, firm Merlot, blended with 16% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec. Those two grapes pull it even tighter, framing the black cherry fruit with sleek, polished tannins. The acidity and natural minerality suggest that a bit more bottle age will add extra depth and flesh.
