Buena Vista Merlot Carneros 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

This Merlot is an impressive example of Carneros fruit and a testament to what a truly wonderful growing region it is for all Bordeaux grape varietals. The 1997 Carneros Estate Merlot is well balanced, full–bodied and packed with flavors of pomegranate and chocolate. The wine has many layers that unfold with each sip. Its round, smooth tannins lend promise to great aging potential.
