This polished red wine has beautiful hints of black cherry and sandalwood finished with silky tannins.

What a bountiful Merlot. It is a healthy blend of berries with the slight nod to caramel and plums with a bit of tomato sauce. Full bodied & ready for pasta.

With the addition of Cab Savignon and Cab Franc, this blend is the exception to your average Merlot. It is beautifully aged in oak. Red fruits stand out with a soft tannins finish.

I really enjoyed the ‘13 but this 2015 has a nicer longer finish and is on the heavier side. I love the black fruits note and the hint of oak. Great level of medium-high acidity and dryness. Great Merlot dominant blend.

What a great Merlot blend!!! Everything a Merlot should be! Nice spice and strawberry notes. Love how the cab franc elevates this wine. It is so smooth and silky - drinks well on its own and even better with food! Love!!!
