Tasting Notes:

Tasting notes: Our 2009 Merlot has a clear, beautiful, dark ruby color with a floral nose of rose. The nose has more to offer than just a little floral note, we found charcoal, pencil box, and burnt oak. A well balanced wine that tastes of plum and pumpkin with very nice subtle tannin, then a nice lingering finish that completes this wine’s wonderful journey.
