This was a beautiful vintage for Merlot. From the first pour the wine opens an of abundance enticing aromas and mouth-coating flavors of fresh summer berries, dark plums, and strawberries, fresh herbs and flowers all presented with juicy energy, surrounded by seamlessly textured tannins that will age attractively with cellaring. Flatter Merlot's fruit by adding a similar element of fruit to poultry, pork and meat dishes (duck breast with dried cherry-Merlot sauce, roast chicken with cranberry-wild rice stuffing). Caramelized onions, roasted garlic and mushrooms are pleasant companions.

Tart black cherry meets plum, strawberry and clove, while softened tannins belie the wine's overall density and sense of generosity. A smoky waft of cigar amplifies the power and sinewy nature of the full-bodied wine, which is ready to lie down for a rest. Enjoy best 2020 through 2024.

Distinctive barnyard and currant aromas open to complex but earthy flavors of cedar, black cherry and leather. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,000 cases made.
