Deep 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.

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker Ed Killian chose classic winemaking techniques, including pumpovers three times per day to extract and retain maximum flavor density from these high quality grapes. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec were blended in to add depth, complexity and structure to this Merlot, which was aged 12 months in European oak — 42% of which was new oak. As has been tradition at Souverain, Killian kept each vineyard lot separate through aging to capture special vineyard nuances and quality opportunities when blending.
