Lava Cap Merlot El Dorado Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Rich and smooth. This elegant wine has beautiful notes of raspberry and chocolate, complemented by a rich texture, gentle tannins, and a long finish. Blended with our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon (9%) for added mouth feel and body.

Wine Tasting NotesRich and smooth, this is our best Merlot to date. Grapes are from Lava Cap estate vineyards. 1,200 cases produced. This full-bodied, elegant wine has beautiful, rich cherry and berry flavors with a solid backbone of soft tannins, acid, and French oak. Enjoy with pork chops, turkey, and pasta.
