  • Outrageously Good - Classic Tradition

    This wine displays a nice deep garnet tone. The aromas are full and bright, with a lively beam of acidity and an appealing hint of lightly toasted oak, slight spice and vanilla. On the palate the wine is full bodied with a modest attack. The supple flavors are of classic red fruits. It is well-balanced from front to finish, with a well- rounded texture on the midpalate. The wine has a long soft finish with just a trace of brightness, and a dash of tannin. Drink now through 2025.

    Vineyard Notes
    With the exception of a slight heat spike in June, the weather remained consistent throughout the 2013 growing season. The vines embraced the easy year by offering ripe fruit characteristics and resolved tannins.
    Production Notes
    This Merlot was grown on our Knollwood Vineyard estate in Oak Knoll District. The grapes were hand-picked and hand-sorted prior to stainless steel tank fermentation. The wine was drained and pressed the wine shortly before dryness and completed the fermentation without further skin contact. The wine was aged in French oak barrels for 28 months prior to bottling.
