Wine Tasting Notes
The Sonoma County Merlot is deep garnet with a ruby edge. The nose is a compelling mixture of blackberry, dark cherry, and raspberry with cocoa, clove, and lifted aromas of bay laurel and vanilla framing the bright fruit. On the palate, bright red fruit, red plum, black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry are framed by light toast and sweet vanilla notes, while spice lends depth and weight. This medium-bodied wine finishes with toasty oak notes and rich, firm cocoa-like tannins.
81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon
