About This Wine:
Deep ruby color with a crimson hue. Subtle nuances of cherry and mint aromas support an abundance of mulberry and plum fruit. A soft and supple bouquet of lush plum, cedar and hints of blackberry are framed with silky tannins. Blueberry essence builds on the back palate for a smooth finish.

Our favorite Joy of Cooking® pairing for this wine includes veal parmigiana, chicken marsala over polenta, and butternut squash soup.

Absolutely delicious!
This is a superb example of a Carneros Merlot, with loads of big ripe fruit and a long finish. One of my favorite, go-to wines!

Production Notes:

Brix at Harvest 24.0

Winemaker Notes:

“The Carneros region with its climate and clay soils allows us to produce a Merlot which is true to the varietal’s characteristics. The longer growing season allows the fruit to reach maturity slowly, giving us fruit which is soft and elegant, yet rich and full flavored.”
