Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were harvested during the last two weeks of September at optimal ripeness of sugar and tannins with concentrated fruit flavors. Winemaking followed classic Bordeaux methods. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in french oak barrels (40% new oak) for 18 months before bottling in June 2005. Seavey Vineyard's tenth estate-produced Merlot was made from 100% Merlot grapes grown at several different elevations of the vineyard.

Following fermentation, the wine was aged in French oak barrels (40% new oak) for 18 months before bottling in May 2005. The 2003 Merlot has an enticing nose of mulberry, coffee and mocha. It exhibits a rich palate of plum, black cherry and cedar with soft tannins. While delicious to drink now, it should age well for many years.
