2005 Merlot

2005 Merlot

The wine’s opulence is a signature of the classic 2005 vintage. To our core Merlot blocks, we added Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot from the very top of our vineyarad, a block we call Masochist Hill because of its extreme slope. This addition augments the mountain character of the wine, adding complex spice notes and sufficient tannin to see this wine through many years of happy aging.
