Appearance: Rich ruby red intensity with crimson accents Aroma: Incredibly rich, with intense blackberry and black cherry, accented by vanilla-toasted oak with hints of cassis. Flavors: Supple and ripe blackberry, black cherry and hints of toasted oak and vanilla fill the mouth with a full mid-palate and a long, round finish.

A distinctive, supple Merlot characterized by fruit concentration and elegance. Deep, stone fruit aromas. Rich, lush and velvety. Fresh fruit flavors of cherries, plums and blackberries merge with light, toasty oak. Well balanced and structured, with a long finish.

Black pepper, Turkish tobacco and sweet strawberry fruit all knit together in this tense, stylish Merlot. There's a strong oak influence, but it finishes clean. Decant it for chicken grilled wiuth Moorish spices.

Medium-bodied, with pretty spice, currant, black cherry and leather notes. Mild tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2006.

Merlot continues to gain in popularity due to its rich, complex black cherry and plum character with velvety-smooth feel. This wine has been aged in small oak barrels to add further complexity and richness.

A curious and complex style that stretches the band of flavors, with a range that goes from ripe cherry and currant to herb and bell pepper. Well-integrated tannins make it appealing now; best from 1999 through 2004.
