This delicious Merlot presents a wonderful
bouquet of maraschino cherry, cassis and floral spices. On the
palate, the wine is full of succulent fruit that is framed by
tannins that are very well rounded and soft. A spicy undertone
of complexity rounds out the mouthfeel with earthy, dusty
elements that speak to the Dry Creek Valley appellation. This
wine shows off its regional complexity and is true to the
varietal character. It is distinctive and full-bodied with a
seamless, lingering finish.
