Jarvis Merlot 2013
Merlot is a varietal that does very well on the gentle, sloping vineyards of Jarvis Estate, producing a highly anticipated wine. Our 100% Merlot is so desired, it is often our first wine to sell out each vintage. Aged a minimum of 18 months in new French oak barrels and then cave-aged to perfection, the wine is ready to enjoy upon release.
This is a smoky and herbaceous version of the variety, with big, bold flavors of black cherry, blackberry and cured meat. Powerfully built in brawny tannin, it finishes soft and seductively.
