An impressive array of flavor, texture and complexity this merlot has a well-focused structure with aromas of dark, ripe fruit, which leads into caramel notes.  On the palate are dense flavors of lusciously rich fruit and barrel spices, accented by a touch of smoky leather on the back end.  The wine is balanced and well structured with flavors that are opulent while exemplifying supple tannins and enchanting fruit.  Each of these vineyards contributes a terroir of unique flavors and layers of spice to the fresh ripe fruit.  The complexity of soft tannins reveals a savory finish that lingers on the palate.  This wine will age gracefully and will only deepen over time.  Drink now through 2028.
