Chocolate, vanilla and shaved cedar greet the nose along with some red berry fruit and a hint of camphor. Broad in the mouth and fairly fresh, with a nice layered entry that shows off an earthy undertone, hints of leather and wood spice, and an accent of vanilla over a base of dark red berry fruit. There's even a touch of strawberry on the back end, though the wood treatment becomes more dominant in the mouth. The tannins certainly take the upper hand on the finish, where this is fairly obviously oaky and a bit hot. The fruit does stay there, it’s just under the wood the whole time. 88pts

Our Peter Mondavi Family Merlot is polished and inviting. Chocolate covered cherries, coffee and layered plum flavors unite with blueberry, cola and toffee aromas to give a persistent and enjoyable finish. - Winery

Wild berry and blueberry aromas, with a touch of roasted pecans. An artful blend composes this balanced wine giving it a chewy texture and an intense yet lengthy finish.


Winemaker's Notes:

Our Merlot plays off aromas of chocolate covered cherries, raspberry and orange peel while flavors unite with ripe red fruit and a hint of mineral notes. Soft integrated oak provides a balanced, lingering finish for this luscious wine.
