A ripe wine with upfront black-plum and brambly fruit on the opening. The center is fairly complex with layers of blueberry and red cherry fruit, leading to a vivid and uplifted finish.
Bright and pleasing, just a bit simple. Sweet and spicy raspberry fruit on the nose. Varietally correct cherry and chocolate flavors. Decent mouthfeel.
An elegant, built to please Merlot which strikes a nice balance between berry and cherry fruit flavors and the earthy tannic finish.
Good winemakers blend tastes the way painters blend colors. Nowhere does this truth show up more than in this wine by Daryl Groom, who was imported from Australia several years age to revive this winery's reputation. And has he!! This is the best value-for-flavor Merlot in America. Creamy dark-chocolate flavors and rich vanilla oak. Great structure.
Crisp, with ripe, plummy fruit and hints of cherry, spice and berry. Earthy tannins on the finish.
A fruit-driven style; red cherry, raspberry and cola complemented by hints of spice, tobacco and cedar. The palate is bright and lively, with cherry and plum and flavors following through to a finish of plush, velvety tannins.
Our Block Collection Merlot was cold-soaked for three days to extract the gorgeous red fruit flavors and vibrant aromatics for which the varietal is known. Twice daily pump overs coaxed phenomenal color from the skins and built a solid foundation of tannin to complement the luscious fruit. After being drained off skins the wine was immediately put to barrel where it aged for 22 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels.
Dense and polished this wine shows a lovely mix of brown spice, peppercorn, and sage on the nose. The palate is a riot of rich dark fruit showcasing plush cherry, black raspberry, and pomegranate. Fine tannins provide a great framework for this supple wine and make it a good candidate for medium-term cellaring.
Aged 22 months.
