Selected wines from various California counties are blended to provide a Merlot with fresh, intense plum and cherry vanilla aroma. A full, round, ripe berry flavor accompanied by a rather soft, spicy finish make this wine particularly delectable. A large portion of this wine was aged in French oak for eight months to add complexity and structure to the rather opulent fruit characteristics of the Merlot grapes.

You get a big bang for your buck here. It's a terrifically fruity wine, packed with black cherry and blackberry flavors that are long and presistent through the finish. Soft in tannins, and so ripely sweet you could pour it over vanilla ice cream, but it's a dry wine.

This is a nice, dry, smooth red wine. It has pleasant flavors of berries and cocoa, and is very soft in tannins.

Clean and balanced, with jammy flavors of plums, earth and blackberry, it has well-etched tannins, a rich mouthfeel, and a spicy finish.

The Vintner's Blend has a rich, somewhat soft, moderately complex, spicy, ripe, raspberry aroma. The flavors are those of black cherries, mint and vanilla with a sturdy, slightly astringent finish.

Full of smooth tannins, this Merlot shines with bright fruit flavors of black plum and cherry along with olive and spice.
