Scents of berry, spice and smoke. Mild mocha flavor, a bit powdery, with a long, warm finish.

The Wine News ReviewIntense aromas of plum, leather and oak. Rich, creamy flavors of black cherry and blackberry. Chewy tannins and impressions of black cherry and mocha in the lingering close.Wine Tasting NotesDeep ruby in color, this concentrated Alexander Valley Merlot offers classic aromas of ripe black plum, blueberry and currant. The core of vibrant fruit balances nicely with the soft, round tannins creating a lush and juicy mouthfeel. Notes of cinnamon and nutmeg, which come from aging in oak barrels, meld nicely with the rich fruit and lead to a long, velvety finish.
