Merlot, with its flavors of cassis and black cherry, accompanied by soft tannins and silky mouthfeel, stands out as a very easy drinking wine. This is a varietal that does very well, year after year, on our gentle sloping vineyards. As a key component in our Lake William blend, Merlot contributes deep amethyst hues and dark berry flavor.

Wine EnthusiastA tremendous wine, this is characteristic Merlot, with its soft tannins and fleshy, appealing mouthfeel. There's an intense core of cherry pie filling, red currants and heady cherry liqueur. Yet the alcohol is moderate, giving the wine an elegant, supple feeling. It's delicious and easy to drink now, but try giving it 4-5 years in the cellar to let it begin to mature.
