A rich, dark garnet color in the glass with vibrant purple shimmer, this Merlot displays aromas of ripe plum, rich cocoa, blueberry and violet with hints of juicy black cherry. A luscious mouthfeel full of dark fruit, hints of sweet spice and restrained astringency lead into a delicious, lingering finish filled with toasty oak undertones.

Vineyard Notes
The grapes for this wine were grown primarily in the Arroyo Seco appellation of Monterey County, which sits on a gravelly alluvial plain beneath the Santa Lucia mountain range. The gravelly loam soils of the appellation present ideal conditions for growing merlot, allowing the grapes to develop intense red fruit flavors and deep color.

We age our Merlot in French oak barrels which enhances mouth feel and contributes dark chocolate and vanilla flavors. 50% new French oak, balance neutral.
