Incredibly dark and well-structured. This 100% Estate Merlot underwent an extended maceration period of 60 days! The aromatic components of plum and allspice are very true to varietal. A giant structured mouthfeel and flavors of blackberry, vanilla, minerals, and spice mingle playfully on the palate.
This wine is a beautiful straw color and the nose is dominated by honeysuckle, flinty minerality, and subtle honey essences. The mouthfeel is surprisingly full and complex with flavors of tropical fruits, vanilla, Asian pear, and stone fruit that mingle playfully on the palate. The finish is framed with firm acidity, minerals, and fresh fruit.
The color is a vibrant ruby. Aromas of strawberries, mocha, vanilla, and cherries unite. Fresh red raspberries dominate the palate, with underlying flinty chalkiness and hints of dried sage, all accented with balanced acidity, and tannins.
Green apple and minerals on the nose coupled with a delicate balance of vanilla from new French oak. The palate is moderately creamy with notes of brioche and Asian pear. Crisp and refreshing finish with a well-balanced liveliness that entices you to enjoy another sip.
