90% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot. Deep, dark color and a powerful nose of chocolate cherries and old bourbon barrels - this wine lets you know right away you're in for something special. Somewhere between a Cab and Merlot, this thing is BIG. Nice chocolate balanced with cherries and plum, maybe even a little coffee character. Drinking really well right now, fantastic on day 2 but fading by day 3. For $20 sale price this is a bargain.


Winemaker's Notes:

Like all of our wines, our 2004 Merlot is aged exclusively in hand selected, small French oak barrels that are meticulously chosen for their richness and suitability for a particular variety of wine. Our 2005 Merlot blend was aged for 15 months in Francois Freres, Treuil and Radoux barrels that beautifully framed in the Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot fruit from this vintage. The final blend displays spicy vanilla, espresso and candied cherries on the nose followed by concentrated flavors of sweet black cherries, black currants, cassis and cocoa all wrapped with a hint of earthiness on the palate. The wine is viscous and the tannins are sweet, lush and linger on the palate for nearly one full minute.
