Vintage: 2005 07/25/2009

Merlot has soft tannins and a silky texture on the palate and for this reason we have always added small amounts of it to most of our red wines. Picking from vineyard sites in different areas helped to create more complexity as each microclimate added it's own nuance. We added a small amount of Cabernet Franc for improved structure and richness in the mouth. The color is medium red while the aroma and taste are of ripe red and black cherries. The finish is long, soft and elegant. This wine is very enjoyable now and will gain complexity over the next five to eight years.
