Alcohol By Volume


Dark, vibrant red color with aromas of bright red plum, tobacco leaf, cedar, and toasty oak. Red bramble fruit on the palate with supple, fine-grained tannins, lively acidity, and a long finish. JO (7/21)
Heavy winter rains followed by a long cool spring delayed budbreak. Warm weather in August and September accelerated ripening for a mid-October harvest. The destemmed grapes were left to ferment for seven days as whole berries. After pressing, the new wine was sent to barrel to complete malolactic and age for a further nineteen months. Focused fruit, elegant tannins and balanced acidity characterize this unique merlot. It will develop over the next ten years. JO (7/21)
