2016 Merlot

« Back to Shop

Dark blackberry and ripe cherry fill the nose, while hints of savory, vanilla, and graham encourage pause for deeper
reflection. The palate mirrors the nose with a slight bit of blueberry and brown sugar showing as well. The mouth-feel is full, rich, and round, while vibrant acids provide structure and complexity. Slight herbaceous hints layering the mid-palate reveal our addition of just a bit of Cabernet Franc to the blend.
