  • Outrageous! Our Merlot displays intense aromatics of blue and red berries, black fruits, roasted nuts and toasted oak. Medium to full-bodied, it shows a luxurious richness of sweet fruit flavors that is accompanied by a suppleness that shows in the mouth-feel.

    Wine Profile
    Production Notes
    With each vintage, I am increasingly excited by the interaction of our Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The Merlot from our properties in the Oak Knoll District tends towards rich ripe and full bodied wines. Our Cabernet Franc contributes a spicy character, and a beam of tannin which reinforces the midpalate of this wine. The two varietals interact wonderfully together.
    Winemaker Notes
    I find dark red and purple berry aromas in this wine … dark cherries, plum, pomegranate, hints of oak, tea leaf, dark chocolate. On the palate the wine is ripe and full bodied yet vibrant and displays a wonderful juxtaposition of round texture and defined angles. It is a rich wine with dark ripe fruit, balanced with a nice spicy character from the Cabernet Franc in the blend. The finish is long and lingering. This wine will benefit from being gently decanted, and will age gracefully for 6-8 years. Drink Now through 2022.
