Made from 96% Merlot and 4% Malbec that’s aging in mostly French oak (there 12% American oak), the 2016 Merlot offers up a forward, sexy, spice-filled style that’s going to drink nicely right out of the gate. Black cherries, red and black currants, toasted spice, vanilla bean and a touch of oak all give way to a medium to full-bodied, layered, ripe, balanced 2016 to drink over the coming 10-15 years.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A barrel sample composed of 96% Merlot and 4% Malbec, the 2016 Merlot has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of baked plums, blueberry pie and spice box with hints of garrigue and dusty earth plus a waft of bay leaves. The full-bodied palate possesses a good core of plummy fruit with a velvety frame and just enough freshness, finishing with an herbal lift. 
Barrel Sample: 90-92

Winemaker Notes

The 2016 vintage has layers of aromatics ranging from black cherry, plum, and raspberry to graham cracker, vanilla, butterscotch, and sweet hickory smoke. These flavors extend to the palate, which has a rich and silky entry with bright acidity and firm structure, resulting in great tension, balance, and persistence on the finish.

Blend: 96% Merlot, 4% Malbec
