  • 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
    Tasting Notes
    The wine displays light red berry aromas and hints of spicy tones on the nose. The Merlot in the blend is round and medium-bodied with red berry and blueberry fruit characteristics. It is balanced and enhanced with Cabernet Franc, which contributes a spicy tone and a light grip of tannin. The combination provides a light framework and structure on the mid-palate with a medium-long finish at the end. Decant 30-60 minutes prior to serving. Drink Now through 2022. -Winemaker, Chris Corley
