The dominant flavor of this rich and smooth Merlot is black cherry, with nuances of milk chocolate, integrated spicy oak and arugula. Great balance of fruit, body, tannin and acidity. The depth and richness of flavor provide a smooth profile that delivers from the initial sip and continues on the palate for a long beautiful finish.

Vineyard Notes

Keyes Vineyard – Howell Mountain (79%): At roughly 1,850 ft elevation, this Howell Mountain vineyard sits adjacent to the Las Posadas State Forest. The mountainous soil is predominantly volcanic, shallow with low fertility, and producing merlot that expresses dark fruits like blackberry and dark currant.

Oakville Reach Vineyard – Oakville (12%): Predominantly a rich clay loam that supports healthy vineyards. The wines express flavors of dark cherry and rhubarb.
