On the lighter side, this graceful red shows pretty cherry and sage flavors that linger against velvety tannins. Shows deft balance and a sense of harmony. Drink now through 2013. 204,000 cases made. -HS The 2008 Merlot Grand Estates which includes 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc in its blend was aged for 14 months in 33% new oak, quite a commitment to another $12 wine. It displays a pleasant perfume of spicy red fruits, cherry blossom, and cassis but comes up slightly narrow on the palate. This wine is unlikely to be cellared by purchasers but should a bottle or two get lost and reappear in a year or two, it could well have filled out. ** SOLD OUT **

Classic Merlot aromas of spice, blackberry and cocoa carry through the palate. The balance of oak and black fruits creates a velvety, seductive finish.

Aromas of vanilla bean, coffee bean, and mocha introduce this classic Merlot. Dark chocolate covered cherries, caramel and nutmeg flavors meld with silky tannins and create a long and elegant finish.
