In 2009, we grew our 16th vintage of Merlot. The growing season on our southern facing hillside vineyard was particularly long and allowed our grapes to mature without rush. This wine maintains a soft and opulent entry into the palate with flavors of blueberry compote, blackberry jam, boysenberry pastry, mulberry, violets, tobacco, cocoa, vanilla, cedar and leather. The firm tannins provide a tactile yet velvety texture, which lingers on the finish. Savor each glass of this wine as it will continue to reveal its complexities for hours after you open the bottle. Enjoy 2012 - 2022.
