2008 Merlot 750

2008 Merlot 750

Described by some of our friends as the best Merlot they have ever tasted, the triumphant 2008 is our fifteenth Merlot vintage. The wine is particularly dark, rich, and complex. The nose is enticed by violets, blackberries, blueberries, bramble, a weightless floral perfume and a touch of French oak. Once in the mouth the palate is presented with tobacco, cocoa covered truffles, pomegranate, boysenberry and ripe chewy tannin which provide a supportive structure for its wide flavor profile. Enjoy 2011 - 2018.

Described by some of our friends as the best Merlot they have ever tasted, the triumphant 2008 is our fifteenth Merlot vintage.

"Sleek and focused, with bright red currant and tomato leaf aromas and flavors that balance density with elegance, plus notes of black cherry, toasty loam and pepper. Ripe tannins tighten the finish. "
